Helen bought me a present of four Faber Castel pastel pencils (two brown, one white and one black) as I have been enthusing to her about using the ones John lent me. I couldn't wait to use them so discarded my pencils and charcoal and sketched Friday's portraiture model with them. Their advantage over ordinary pastels are that they're in pencil form so much less messy as they don't generate the same amount of dust on your hands and the floor plus they're great for detailing. Yet another great medium to use.
