All new Caran d'Ache Pastel Pencils

Last week I made a fantastic discovery - the local art shop Creas has new pastels available.
I'm a big fan of Caran d'Ache pencils, I find them amazing. I use both their Graftwood graphite pencils as well as Supracolor pencils. I am yet to find a product from them I don't like.

These new pastels are amazing. They are extremely creamy and nice to work with. The different colours blends in nicely and the colours actually stick to the paper when applying new layers. It's a problem I've often had before; layers disappearing a bit when adding more layers on top. These Caran d'Ache pastels aren't so bad at this, which makes them easier to work with.
Another big plus with these pastels are the fact they are lightfast and the tones you can get are amazing. I love the golden matte tones, especially the dusty lilac/purple, Aubergine, and the neutral peach/brown tones.
You can see the colour palette here:
All in all I am very happy with these pastels and highly recommend them.

This was my first drawings using the new pastels, using only those.
You can find the pastels on Caran d'Ache's website:
