Originally I choused this picture for my OPs painting. I finally got 40 colors set of Holbein and some ColourFix paper to go with it and plained to use it for this work. At the very last moment for some reason I changed opinion and instead of using my precious OPs, brough our brand new set of Carre pastels from Sakura and decided to give it a try... It is my first work in Pastels, if we will not count my teen years, when I had a small set of "Yarka" and my other tools were - own finger, some send paper for Dad's garage and heir spray! Well, ColorFix is much better then send-paper from garage, as for Sakura pastels on this type of support they did a good job. I wouldn't be so sure about using of it on regular pastel paper... not soft enough. And once again - the same old wish: I wish I would have more colors!
