Pastels are a wonderful drawing and painting medium.  I love the drawing aspect so I can leave my drawing strokes,  And I like the countless ways to use the medium such as:

  • Underpainting–use pastel first and then make it a paint with either water or alcohol
  • Paper vs. sanded grounds–use different surfaces to create more or less texture
  • Blending–Blend pastels with other colors or use a color alone. Use a dull color and add whiter or vibrant colors on top
