Pastel Pencils

When I did this image of the iconic mountain (where I used to mountain guide) I was struck by how much I relied upon pencils and hard pastels.

The pastel pencil is indispensable for doing little realist works. I have 2 sets of Derwents, and two sets of Faber-Castells, and a drawer full of open stock of the same. And don't forget the General charcoal white pencil.
