Pastels and sanded paper

PASTELS

After receiving a beautiful set of pencil pastels for Christmas, last Christmas to be specific, I thought I should finally use them before this Christmas! I have never used pastels of any kind. I have always been quite adverse to messy sticks of chalk! But these were pencils, much like my colored pencils. I found they are very much like my colored pencils - only quicker to use. Very pleasing actually. 
And on top of learning a new medium - there are paper choices!
This one is on sanded pastel paper - which I love!


This one, the same scene as above,  is on textured pastel paper - which would have been okay if I hadn't tried the sanded paper.

Angels we have heard on high

Angels we have heard on high Sweetly singing o'er the plains And the mountains in reply Echoing their joyous strains
