Pastels

Are you looking for some Pastel Colours for your next art project? You can find all sorts of Pastel Colours at affordable prices here for you to get started!

Pastels are the spectrum of pale colours that can be best described as washed, desaturated and soft. They bring a different feel and depth to your artwork compared to the standard colour set. There are various types of pastel colours that can be used, including; pastel pencils, hard pastels, soft pastels and water soluble pastels, all of which bring a unique element to your work. Pastels also blend well together giving you more flexibility with what you can achieve in this medium.

It’s important to remember that the type of surface you are drawing will impact how the pastels work. Smoother surfaces and papers will give you better control whereas a harder surface will noticeably impact the finished look with the texture coming through.
