Studio Work - PastelMat

I was trying to get myself out of the recliner last night and decided to just do a quick little pastel. This is about 4x6 and is on PastelMat paper. Love that stuff! Since I'd been using so much sanded or homemade surfaces lately, it took some time to get in the groove on this paper again. Although it holds many layers, you have to paint lightly, but when you do, it rewards you with grabbing the pastel with little dust, and you rarely need a fixative. Like working with 'butter'....
