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

Turning Points

When we think back on our artistic life and how we began and progressed, which for me started 42 years ago; a huge part of our journey is the milestones and turning points we experience.

The Dyslexic Artist

Dyslexic people nearly always have a natural flair for one or more of the arts such as music, acting, dancing or like me, art.

Tell A Story In Your Paintings & Speak Your Truth

“Why did I pick that to paint?” Stop for a moment and ask yourself that before you move on. I usually know why I picked my subject, before a single pastel stroke hits my paper…

You Enjoy Painting And Then You Get Lost

It happens. You are comfortable with painting. Yes, you know you have room for improvement and growth. But you enjoy painting. And then you get lost.

When Less Is More – Pastel Zen

I have a bit of a theory; it is my opinion that every piece of art is a self-portrait of the artist and a mirror to the viewer…

The Pause Before the Start

For many of us, our lives are filled with hurry. Creativity is something that we know we value and want to prioritise, and if we are lucky enough to have time for it, we often carry our hurry into our times of creating.

Best Behaviour

In the past much of my work was provocative, unsettling, edgy as subjects related to human rights and confrontational issues. In fact I had avoided pastels with the erroneous belief that pastels were a gentle medium for artists (with a few exceptions) who produced exquisite drawings or paintings.

Creativity and Plein Air Painting – Oaxaca, Mexico

I was just ready to go somewhere new and exotic.  I don’t even remember how I happened upon this particular retreat, but one day there it was, and I thought about it for only a hot minute before signing up.

Building a Better Boulder (AKA Preventing Painting Potatoes)

While some may have curio cabinets filled with nick-nacks, I have rocks.  Smooth rocks, rough rocks, satiny, shiny, sparkly, large rocks, small rocks, really, really small rocks, if it is a rock, I am intrigued by it.

Associate Artist Intake for 2022

It seems a while ago since we asked for applications from artists to become an Associate Artists & wow the applications came in thick & fast. So much so it took our Unison Helen a good while to get through them all.
