Abstract:

Compared with other media, pastels are relatively easy and convenient to use, have a wide range of colours from the most brilliant to the most delicate greys and can be used for a very extensive field of subject matter including landscape, portrait, figure, flowers, etc., and are capable of producing some very beautiful and subtle effects of light and atmosphere. As soon as you get the hang of it and get used to your palette and become selective of your own colour schemes you will soon begin to speed up, for pastels are quite a rapid medium, and I am sure you will love them as I do. - Introduction.
