Whenever I am involved in a workshop students
always buzz with conversation about equipment.
prochade boxes, the best easel to use
and their favorite brush or pastel.
Can you just imagine Edgar Degas with this
small little box of pastels at the Paris Opera!

I photographed the Degas pastel box at the Musee D' Orsay where it was on display. Also visited the shop in Paris where Henri Roche pastels are still sold. Very lucky to have seen these on display and had this experience.
