I appreciate it!
Me too! I LOVE pastels, unfortunately, I can hardly use them any more. The dust was causing me so many health problems. I started using masks waaay before covid started, just to try and control breathing in the dust. I have a ton of pastel paper (I'm a paper hoader - ha!) and pastels that are going unused. That's why I started with watercolors, wanted to be able to paint without getting myself sick. Every now and again, I'll paint watercolor onto pastel paper - just cuz!I do like to use colored paper or backgrounds for pastels
