    A winner as always, Colombe! I’ve just discovered Colourfix paper and the newer version called Colorfix suede!!! What a difference that makes!!
    I’m seeing results already that vaguely resembles your awesome drawings :-)
    Nice new profile pic, too!

  • Hi Picatso! No this one isn’t a winner, I wasn’t happy when doing it, too many other distractions,,,,
    I will have to find this Colourfix suede that you’re talking about, I’m intrigued. Is the texture a bit softer than the regular Colourfix?

    Yes, it’s a lot smoother, like really soft suede. It’s still paper, but I find the Colorfix to ‘eat’ sooo much of my pastels. But I still prefer it over regular paper. But the Colorfix suede is very smooth. check out my Flaming Green Goddess I did her on the ‘suede’ paper. Unfortunalely not a large range of colours, no greens or warm colours, mostly white, grey and browns and black.

    Ah bon ! tu peux dire aubergine aussi en Anglais ? c’est bon à savoir…
    Tu lui as fait un regard très gentil et intense, une bouche très bien dessinée et de belles ombres sur le visage. You have a wonderful way with pastels and the intensity of the colours used, blows me away…surtout sur le fond aubergine !

  • Berk, berk, berk! Je ne l’aime pas du tout ce pauvre jeune. Il y en a des comme ça qui ne font pas plaisir. Il n’y a peut-être que le drapé du foulard…
    Ouiiiiii aubergine est utilisé pour la couleur seulement. C’est rigolo.
    M’em baou al leït, tout le monde est sorti ce soir et je suis toute seule.
    Un bon lit douillet et un bon livre… Bises à toi Frog!

    Better listen is sis, this is a wonderful portrait.

  • You’re too nice Jim. I’m not happy with this one though, I think I need to work on the face colours a bit more to soften them up a bit.
    Thank you for dropping by!
