  • I know Vivien's work - you really have done an excellent job with the wolf, fur everything about it - those eyes? The course obviously is going very well and it sounds very interesting to me. Could you let me know details? Soft pastel I can work with not good with pencils!

  • Thank you. Just go to Vivien's website- all the details on courses are on there. This was all instructions via email including photos of each stage and the paper an initial drawing by mail.http://www.vivienwalters.co.uk/

  • Wow! Just everything is perfect. You have amazing skill with pastels and have captured the nobility of the wolf. Very compelling work - I commend you.

  • Commend Vivien on a superb original picture and a brilliant course. Now whether I can repeat that in one of my own remains to be seen LOL. If you'd seen the number of times I dropped a black pastel on the clear background and heard the curse as I tried to get the marks off, you would comment differently LOL. It's not as good as hers but I do love it. Think I'll try to make the wolf's right cheek a little less puffy. What I learned most was how to build up the density of the fur. (and how NOT to overdo the laying on of the pastel- gently does it). Now to have a go at one of my dogs as soon as my pack of paper and new set of pastels arrives.

  • Great start Diana, it sounds a good way of learning to use the pastels. A tip - next time you drop a pastel, use blue tack to lift off the mark, it won't smudge like a putty rubber.

  • That's what I did; I lightly brushed an loose pastel with a soft brush then used blu tack; well white tack actually.

  • This is lovely. I, too, will look at Vivien's web-site. Thanks by the way for your comments on my "lemons" work - I've been trying to enter the forum but can't get on.
