It's got pizazz now, Danielle.  I like the oversized mouse face sneaking onto the canvas from the right (top corner).

Well if we were going to "put a name to the face," we could call him "Mickey."

A great painting, Danielle. Even with "Mickey" in the corner!!  I like the subtle shades, and it's very peaceful. Good job.

Here is my try of this Pastel Piece. When I sprayed it with fixative everything got darker.

looking good. :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
That is the problem with fixative and varnish - it changes the color so you have to compensate for that if you know in advance you will be coating the artwork,
I know many people use a fixative that you can work over so then you just add the final highlights back over the fixative to bring the artwork back to life.

Thanks Nolan..  I thought of putting the highlights back into the foreground but wouldn't you need to spray it again after you touch it up?

Over-spraying a pastel drawing will darken up the colours. Fixative is not to protect the surface of a pastel painting, but to "fix" any loose pastel dust from falling on the matt after it has been framed behind glass. I know may artists who do not use fixative at all. It is quite in order to do a few touch-ups after spraying with fixative.I always protect unframed pastel paintings with a large sheet of tracing paper.

 :heeha: Great go Robyn!  :clap: :clap: :clap:   

After trying fixative once I´ve never used it again. I just give a few good taps on the back to knock off any loose bits, then either frame it or stack them on top of one another with tracing paper in between.
I´ve quite fallen for the sanded papers and the velour paper. They hold so many layers and just don´t seem to let go. The sanded papers are available in many different grits and surfaces, just have a play and see what works best for you.  O0

Thanks Dennis and Val for the information.. I'm glad to hear that I can just protect it with tracing paper and not spray. As soon as I looked at it after I sprayed I wished I hadn't. I won't do it again. I have some of that paper Val until you mentioned it I had totally forgot I had it. Ahduh! LOL

Just keep in mind you only need a very light hand on the sanded papers, The pastels flow like silk!  :smitten:

I am not a fan of spraying pastel or pencil works so never do it myself
