Ta so much Lyññ, I am fast becoming even more passionate over pastels. My poor old w/c paintbox is becoming quite dusty from lack of use! I am having so much fun with pastel I´m feeling a bit guilty.     NOT likely!!!   :2funny:
By the by... your latest portrait is stunning.  O0

Val, I am so happy you are loving pastels.  Sometimes I just love staring at them!!!  I do need to get back to oil some because I can't take any classes here at the academy without using oil.  Sad they don't teach pastel.

Lynn, I so understand the staring at them!  :D   If I look too long I have to touch them even though I´m not painting! It´s an addiction to be sure, but what a glorious one!  :heeha:
Cheers, Val

I thought I´d bring this fellow around again as I finally found some mat board yesterday and framed him. I think he needs another coloured mat, but all I could find for now. I have been searching through all of the bazaars here (used and consignment shops) hunting for frames. I have quite a collection now... so just have to paint and fill them all up! Crazy good deals to be had!  :yippee:
Here is the cheetah framed.

Cheers, Val
