Colourful Chronicles

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

Locked Down and Dirty

One of the good things about lockdown this year has been reducing the commute between me and my Unison pastels.

Announcing the Unison Colour Pastel Academy

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!

The Wheel of Fortune

I have only come to pastel painting in the last two years, being a watercolour painter and teacher for almost a quarter of a century prior to that.

Painting Pastel Miniatures

Have you ever wanted to sharpen your mark making skills or improve your ability to simplify a scene to get the best composition? Both of these important skills will improve if you start painting ATC’s or Artist Trading Cards.

The Pastel is mightier than the Sword: Part 2 – Noise

The Pastel is mightier than the sword: Part 1

I cannot say I am a pastel artist, but I am an artist who uses pastels. It didn’t start that way either. Much of my work is humanitarian using art as a means of protest, at least making a noise.

Achieving Colour Harmony for the Pastel Artist

As artists we have many choices to make, starting with the medium we choose. The pastel medium is unique in many ways, and each of you can tell your own story about why you have chosen it.
