Unison Colour Associate Artist

Unison Colour welcomes Mridula Basi to the Associate Artist family.

I’ve been using Unison pastels for a while now and they are my only choice of pastels after trying several brands over the years. Everything about them works for my painting practice, most importantly their colour theory works in my sense of colour perception and execution in my works. So, in the end my pastel palette has become purely Unison for that reason.

I have a studio in the beautiful Scottish town called Culross in Fife. It is mainly my pastel studio as the colours and light in the town inspire me for my pastel work and the space in the studio gives me the right amount of room and light for bigger works. I’m currently working on the Fabriano Titziano paper which I bought as a 10m rolls in black and white. It has worked incredibly well with the Unison pastels and I haven’t had the need to use fixative.

I’m in the process of planning studio sessions for 2 to 3 people once a week as a shared artist session for artists or beginners interested in drawing and pastel painting. My palette is Unison and I hope those sessions will encourage other beginners and artists to take to Unison.

I have never been an advocate of brands or represented any in a commercial sense, my loyalty for Unison is because the palette works perfectly for me and in a back to front way of learning more about colour the Unison theory makes total sense with respect to colour perception and its history in how it is used in human civilisation.
