Pan Pastels

  
I got a basic (5 colors) of pan pastels and gave them a run on a blue orchid.  

Pros: blend nicely
          Bright colors

          Be good for big areas

Cons: still messy

           Need to spray a fixative. 

           Putzsy 

           Difficult to mix colors from the basic set

           Difficult to get small details

My personal conclusion:

          I still prefer Watercolors

          Use pastels for big areas as a background

I know many of you like pan pastels but this is my own experience and conclusions. 

It’s always good to try different things and look at the pros and cons.
