New Pastels and Paper!

'Evening Falls' 5x7 pastel

What a fun day today. My Dakota Pastel order arrived just as I was shopping in my own pastel stash. Every once in awhile I give my box a good cleaning and replace some pastels with some of my extras I have stored. That is always fun to discover what I have hidden. Today was a double because I got some new pastels and papers. I got some Diane Townsend metalics and purples. I couldn't resist the purples! I also got some Pastelmat paper which I haven't tried yet. So which to try first...the paper or the pastels? How about both! The painting I did above is on black pastelmat with some of the metallic pastels. I like the pastelmat but of course need to try some more!

Very very nice.
I recently started using PastelMat, used to use only LaCarte. Love 'em both, for different reasons.
