What do I use ...

While experimenting with various mediums, I discovered Pastel, via tinted charcoal. With the use of coloured paper, it's amazing the images that can come through. I now use soft pastel as the colour painting option for all my work. There is a depth and a warmth I've not found with other mediums and pastel has a wonderful blending tonal quality.

The other option I use is Graphite. There are such tonal qualities to be found in what is fundamentally one original colour. Yet blend this through soft and hard edges, using the whole range through to pure graphite and a portrait with an atmosphere all it's own can be created.
