  1. I managed to view a brilliant tutorial yesterday on this site on portrait painting with pastels (it was an old lady) I can not find the link again to view it, can anyone help? I have sent an email to Bob Davies and Phil Davies but not had a response yet and I really want to watch it again before I go out and buy the (quite expensive I think) pastel pencils.

    The only video I have seen with an old woman is the one on colored pencils. That is listed in the June 2012 section.Don,t know if this helps but good luck.

    did you check your "history" and return to the site that way?look at the day you were viewing the work. History is next to the favorites. some of us clear history every time but I like to save it just for this reason. D
