Pencil pastel advice.

Id reccomend anyone avoiding Stabilo, which im currently annoyed with, their too hard and crumble off the paper even on a deep groove card. Pencils are hard, the choice is dependant on the users style and intrest. I personally like to blend pastel and layer short strokes on top of that to define light and shape, like Renoir and Degas and Rego.

The stabilo screech accross the paper , and break easily, dont settle and half of the colour drops off when i breath on it. Also blending is a nightmare and no matter how light my touch i end up with a mud effect regardless of the colours used.

Ill be buying new pastel pencils later this week so i will review them. And edit this post more coherently with pics ect.
