Pastels are one of my favourite medium. It blends beautifully and has a softness which is lovely for skin and also fur on animals. I like to do them on Igres pastel paper in a fairly neutral colour - eg cream, beige, or pale blue.

Kyran, when he was 6 from a school photo - one of the first pastel portraits I painted. I love the medium especially for it's wonderful blending effects an softness. Its especially good for pets. - on A3 pastel paper
