Ah Nolan, so there is if you come from a page other than the Home Page under "Hot Topics."

Oh, by they way, anyone know how i can switch off the "skip to the relevant details on webpage and get the the meat part' flag that exists in my head???

I say it is both. It depends on what mood I am in at the time.  :2funny: :2funny:

Painting occurs when the colours are blended together - this, when the various pigment particles mix.
Pastels are also made of all the exact same pigment particles except that the binder is different. While it is not as easy to mix these particles as in oils and  watercolours, for example, to a large extent they can be "mixed when using pastels. Just take a simple example: There is red applied the pastel paper and if I add white to it it becomes pink. That's not drawing - that is blending as in any other painting. You can see me do it time and time again in my pastel lessons.


As with any medium you can draw with that medium on the substrate to fix the composition and then "paint" over it with the same medium to produce a painting. That's why it is called a painting :2funny: :2funny:

As we are using some techniques to blend the pastel on the paper it can be seen as painting.  If you use oil pastels, it is painting without a doubt.  Drawing is something else ...

Just saw this.  I believe it is BOTH Nolan.  Like Steven, if you are using the edge of the pastel or pastel pencils and are using a drawing approach, hatching etc., it is clearly drawing.  If you are using side strokes with large chunky pastels, often with a blended underpainting or an alcohol and pastel underpainting it is very much painting to me and most Pastel artists think that this is the distinction.
