  7. They look so vibrant and full of detail again. I am curious, what is the medium? I thought either colored pencil or pastel. Happy Sunday Chris.

    1. Thank you, Ozge.
      The pencils are like pastel, but their container says they are colored charcoal - Carb-Othello / Schwan-Stabilo, made in Germany. I bought them at a yard sale...
      Happy weekend to you, Ozge!
