learning a lot about pastel

pastel on paper 7x7

I am learning that pastels are not so easy! I am anxious to get my order of new soft pastels from Dick Blick. The set I am currently using is an old set that is of very low quality and they do not stick to the paper well at all. I find most of the mess I am making is by trying to get the dust to stick. But I am learning as I go along. I hope to have a basic set of skills by the time May comes and my trip to France where I am taking a plein air pastel workshop.
