Pastels and the Complementary Palette

For all the pastelists out there-  Honey Lea Gaydos has translated my three complementary palettes into pastels.  Here is a link to her blog:  Mastering the Mix-Creating Palettes Using Non-Traditional Pastels
As you know I first started in oils and then translated the palettes into watercolor. I also did pencil pastels (hoping they would produce less dust) but even though I love pastels, couldn't handle the dust!

Here are a couple of pastel pencils - small of course!!!
