Several years ago, 2012 to be precise, my pastel painting took a side road off the path I had been following for a long time.
My travels developed in me a love for the Human face in all its myriad colour and contours. People all over the world share a common humanity we seem to have forgotten. Merriment in a child’s eyes are the same in Iraq as Panama.
One of the good things about lockdown this year has been reducing the commute between me and my Unison pastels.
It’s with great pleasure that today we unveil our new Unison Colour Pastel Academy – a website dedicated to the learning of all things Pastel!
Please note that during this period, we can’t allow visits to our premises.
