Thank you Julie. You are an excellent teacher. You mention just about everything. Even the details one needs. A soothing voice helps too. I am learning so much from you. I am about ready to start.

Julie, thank you very much for the wonderful lessons.  I have been waiting ages to find out a bit more about velour paper.  You have answered all my questions and now i look forward to painting some animals that i have in mind. Many thanks again. painterman

Julie, thank you so much for all this wonderful info on velours, and what pastels to use! Your work is so beautiful! I'm really a water colour painter but as I won my first prize on Arttutor with my painting of the Opera House in pastel (my first try at pastel) I've become a great fan, its a great medium to work with and you make it look so easy! So I'm ready for my next try! These tutorials are just super! regards Robyn

I thoroughly enjoyed this series of how to paint on velour.  The tips are so useful and clear.  Thank you.

Julie Sheppard

I have done this on ArtSpectrum pastelmat but not velour - was a bit different to work on from what you did but still got a fantastic result from following your excellent tutorial - you are an awesome teacher - I never knew I could paint something like that. Thank you so much Julie.
