Colourful Chronicles

Delve into our vast collection of guest blogs, and read about the intriguing methods that artists apply, while using Unison Colour pastels.

For the Love of Colour

I have been fascinated by colour for as long as I can remember. Beautiful colours, vibrant ones or soothing are surprising and fun.

My Journey with Pastel

I have always had an interest in drawing, particularly realism. Bringing my subjects to life is always a challenge and very rewarding.

My Pastel Journey as an Untrained Artist

If At First You Don’t ‘Quite’ Succeed

‘I have many times felt that I have lost the excitement and energy of the initial underpainting stage by overuse of pastel, and I felt that had perhaps happened here when I considered the finished work.’

Following Your Artistic Path

‘The point is to stay on your path, find what excites you, see where it goes and hopefully enjoy the journey that never ends.’

Take it Outside (and your comfort level)!

I am always amazed at how many pastel artists have always wanted to paint “en plein air” (out in the open air) but were hesitant to try.

Starting out with Soft Pastels

With so many art materials available to us out there, it can be difficult to know where to start. My “safe” zone for many years was graphite and coloured pencil but even with those, now that I know more, I realise I was only using them to a tiny fraction of their potential.
