I originally started this pastel as a study using pastel pencils on Wallis sanded pastel paper. My plan was to work in my mobile studio,(my 12 passenger van with a bench removed for my supplies), while I waited on 2 of my daughters in dance class. It's an hour and a half drive to get them there, and not a lot for me to do in the city at that time of day. At least nothing that doesn't involve spending money. So... pastel pencils seemed like a great idea. When I had finished the sketch, I tapped the back as usual, to remove loose pastel! Horror struck as right before my eyes the drawing slid off the paper and onto the ground!
There was just a ghost of a sketch left! My regular pastels are staying nicely on the Wallis ground, and I am finding that I really like this paper.
