Dare I say that it is "painterly drawing"? >:D

What I'm seeing in other sites is if it covers the entire page it's painting, drawing if it's just an object on the page.

I think that if you have a brush in your hand it is painting,  but if you have a pencil like object in your hand its a drawing. I would think painting is wet, drawing is dry.  That's just my opinion.

I hope you don't mind a quote from a book, but I have "Painting with Pastels" from famous Pastels artist Maggie Price:
Quote
Drawing is a matter of line, however, while painting deals with shapes, masses and color. When you use pastels in this way and cover the surface with pigment, the result is a painting. Maggie Price, Painting with Pastels

I have also read from many other professional artists generally the same as Stephen and Batman have reported. 
I think I use to wonder why it was called "painting" as I use to think of pastels as more like "chalk". Of course, thats when I absolutely knew nothing about it compared to now having a knowledge of pastels so large that one might call it just a "smidge".

Some say PASS tul, Some say PASS TEL.  Po-TA-to some say Pa-TAH-to ...  Call it what you will, I suppose.

I vote for painting, but generally speaking I do not worry too much if I paint with pastels or draw with pastels.
But how about our monthly challenge?  :confused: Should I draw a bike or should I paint a flower with pastels? :painting:

I agree with you Nolan, that's the way it was explained to us in the old country in my youth. Doina

I've seen artist use pastel wet (water, alcohol and fixative) for an under painting.  You can move it around with a brush and make mud with the colors....I think it's painting with more of a hands on approach.

it's still a pretty split result at the moment, but not enough votes yet :(

Vote cast now.
