Why Choose Pastel?
Pastel is made of pure pigment (color) that is ground into a dry powder, added to a binder, and rolled into stick form or pencil form. This means that the colors are as vibrant as in any other media.
Lends itself to a soft look and feel, therefore, makes a great choice for children’s portraits.
May be stylized to look more like a drawing, more like a painting, or a mix of both.
Framed and under glass, this medium will last for hundreds of years! How do we know? Because 19th century pastel drawings and paintings are still vibrant!
