Pennies from heaven

For those of you who know the saga of Royal mail and the damaged painting of Tess, I am happy to report that Royal mail have stood by their guarantee and have compensated me for all the costs incurred in repairing the those of you who also use "Special delivery" for sending out paintings can carry on safe in the knowledge that its still a good service to use :-)
Royal mail delivered another surprise this week in the shape of a parcel from Derwent containing samples of their new pastel and pastel pencil ranges, I had been feeling a bit uninspired so some new product to trial was just the thing to get me back into the swing of things.
Next up on the portrait front is a charity donation from last year which is to be a handsome red Alaskan Malamute, I will be working on "Gunner" and trialling the new pastels after I complete a couple of Setter portraits from my "need to finish" file.

Really pleased the Tess saga had a happy ending - its reassuring that Royal Mail stand by their promises :o)

I didn't know Derwent had brought out a new range of pastels - interesting to hear what you think of them.
