Using pastels allow artists to create paintings that are varied in style, they can be rich and vibrant or soft and subdued. The pastels can be used in different positions to create different strokes and the colours can be layered and blended to create textures. The unique quality of pastels is that they are dry so there is no waiting for colours to dry and the colours do not fade, crack or yellow over time. This guide explains how to mix colours with pastels, how to use pastels to create different strokes and how to choose colours and values for your painting.
