$600 french pastels or $2 colored pencils; decisions, decisions…



I drew this image with my box set of
Sennelier Soft Pastels; at $600 they’re not cheap. Like, at all… (and this is especially important, being someone of the beggarly, artistic persuasion). Now, don’t get me wrong, there is something positively ambrosial, about caressing your paper with these pastels. Theure pure bliss.

Alternatively, I drew the one below, with a pack of $2, colored,  school pencils…


My dilemma lies herein; is there really a difference in the quality of the end product? And is it a $598 difference?
