  • Introduction to Pastel Drawing

    • pastels intro

      Many people have the completely wrong idea about Pastel Drawing. When they hear the word Pastel they immediately conjure up an image of a painting that is so pale that one can hardly make out what is is from a short distance.

      I wonder just where that notion originated? Could it be that the Cosmetic Industry advertises their products as soft pastel colours? The same expression is used in the fashion industry. Funnily, a lot of people also have the same image of watercolour paintings as being "soft as pastel"!

      Nothing can be more from the truth. The pigments used in the making of pastel sticks are exactly the same as for oils, watercolours and acrylics, yet no one sees THEM as "pastel shades".

      We will be starting off as if everyone is a complete beginner (if you already have some experience with pastels, please be patient for a while and take this as revision) and slowly work up to more advanced techniques.

      Join me as we start this exciting journey into a new medium!
