October Grasses

"October Grasses" 5x7 Gireault pastels (landscape 50)

I promised myself a set of Gireault Pastels if I got juried into the IAPS show at Vose Gallery in Boston.  I didn't get in so I bought a bigger set!  They arrived today and I tried them out on Art Spectrum colorfix - Sienna. The colors are wonderful and the texture just right.

I have heard that the first thing you should do with a new set is take them out of the box break them  into pieces 1/3 and 2/3.  I know I will enjoy putting these full sticks right back in the box.
I also bought a pad of Mi-Teintes Touch.  The surface seems similar to Art Spectrum Colorfix and the colors are wonderful.
