This is really a post about our new chihuahua puppy. He is soooo cute! It was after I uploaded it to facebook I spotted that the photo had my brand new pot of Golden acrylic ground for pastels in the background next to my pot of Faber-Castell Pitt pastel pencils. I just LOVE this. It makes me feel like a 'proper' artist to have something from the Golden range. On my last piece I had such difficulties in getting the pastel to 'stick' to even a gessoed board that I thought I would try some of this stuff. I intend to put a layer on fairly cheap canvas board to give it more tooth. I will update soon on how I get on and here's a pic of the lovely stuff as yet unopened!
