Pastel Drawing

Brilliant color that does not yellow with time, a velvety matte surface unlike any other medium, dry color that is capable of a range of effects-these characteristics are distinctive to pastels. Pastel drawings and paintings are stunningly beautiful, with rich textures and deep colors. Pastel's look and feel results from the medium's composition, a blend of finely-ground pigment and white extender coalesced with a minimal amount of binder (the latter merely enough to enable the artist to grasp the stick of color between the fingers yet crumble when stroked across a support). It is this powdery property that accounts for the delicate surface of works executed in pastel. Be prepared to get dirty and do wear old clothes or a cover up!
