One thing about art is that you always get better and learn more with practice and while I’d been doing more art by this point, I hadn’t really practiced using Hahnemuhle Velour paper as I have tended to concentrate on using Clairefontaine Pastelmat. I had another sheet of Velour left over from an SAA trial pack of pastel paper and used it to follow a Vic Bearcroft workshop online. I chose this one, which he called ‘Paws for Thought’, because I’ve always liked cats. The other result of this workshop was that I bought some more Hahnemuhle Velour paper to work on as it is really good for animal paintings. At some point I might even find the time to do some!
