Thanks for your helpful comments Patricia and thank you Natalie.
I have had another try with the foreground. I tried dusting off as much as i could and starting again but still can't do with pastel what i can do with paint. I did keep wiping off the whites at every stroke but I can't yet get a nice thin edge or reasonable spots. I would use pastel dust for spots from sharpening a pencil if I thought i could get it in the right place. I think I'll use a bigger format next time.
Thanks for the fast replay Nolan.

     Guys...  :heeha: these are all fantabulous!   :yippee:   I just knew this was going to be a real cracker of a lesson! Just look at these!  :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Just a tip here... don't forget Dennis' tip about erasing with brown bread.  O0

Here's a lark.... I think someone is backing me up on my decision to waylay the pastels and concentrate on my drawing and w/c..... we had NO internet yesterday!!!!  :2funny:

 :thankyou:  Val for your lovely and always valued comments.  I was just thinking that the Paint Basket is getting so busy with all the mediums on offer, which is excellent and so lovely to see but I just cannot hope to do them all so will, like you, just concentrate on those of special interest to me. Of course, I would LOVE to do everything but it is out of the question.  Patricia
