Small doodle

Just a small drawing with pastel pencil .. on Canson 'smooth side' .. I don't really like using pastel on Canson especially the smooth side. The pastel just seems to sit on the top like a pile of dust :)

lovely "doodle"

What would you suggest for pastel paper?
I only did a few pastel paintings, because I didn't get the right feel for it.

Rhonda and Krystna thanks for the positive comments :)

Fay, I too think it's important that the paper you work on should feel 'right'. I personally like the Fabriano Tiziano pastel paper -both sides are the same texture. So if I muck the first side up .. can use the other side. People buying any of my drawings can sometimes expect to find some rubbish drawing on the other side. lol I like the way the pastel sticks to the tooth of the paper and makes a definite mark every time. I like the colours of the canson range but not keen on either side of the paper :)
