have been playing around with pastels on dark paper and have been experimenting on black sandpaper I found at the local Hardware store. They have several different grits in dark colors. I did “Mrs. Kingfisher” on 3M paper, No 320. I liked this paper better, the paper is not so glittery, the pastels took to it better, and the colors really stand out. This is currently unframed, can be an 8″ x 8″ or an 8″ x 10″. If you have not had the chance, please check out and like my facebook page, art by Terri Moore.
