Here it is finished. Pear Halves, 8" x 10" Luminance & Coloursofts on Grey Pastelbord.
I say finished but I really really want to try using a heat gun on it. I saw an article about this technique in Ann Kullberg's e-zine and I think it might just work on the Pastelbord to help fill in the dots... or it may make a huge mess. The point would be for the heat gun to heat up the wax based pencil and let them melt just a bit. Hmmmmm you may see this again or I may chicken out!
& I have to show off my new little drafting table (below) that I got for $20 at the Creative Encounter's Frame Shop basement sale! Yay! (Love that place and all the women who work there!). Its short so I've gotten an exercise ball for a chair... which certainly gave me some exercise blowing it up with the little hand pump that came with it. The hand pump is staying in the studio - it works great for clearing the shavings off my work!
