I love pastels … pure pigment rolled into sticks and held together with a light gum binder.
I am fortunate to be part of the worldwide pastel renaissance. And no wonder! You can layer and blend, smear it and stroke, draw with it, rub, grind, sculpt, wet, carve, graze, abrade, scuff and scrape. It’s the most flexible and get-out colorful medium in the world.
