I had just got myself a new set of soft pastel pencils when I created this. I had been using the sticks, but wanted to give my hand a try with the pencils. I’m use to using charcoal and graphite pencils so I didn’t really think there would be too much of a difference. My theory proved correct. However, I found that the soft pastels pencils blend out more easily and beautifully than charcoal or graphite pencils. If you like to draw get yourself a set of these pencils. Artist to artist…I really think you’ll be pleased with them. I found mine at Micheal’s Art and Crafts while I was in town.
