Colourful Chronicles

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

A Lighter Shade of Pale

Coming from years living on both coasts of Scotland you would think painting the sea would come as easy as breathing; nothing is further from the truth.

How I fell in love with Unison Soft Pastels

Up until four years ago I hadn’t picked up a paint brush or pencil since school. As a child I would draw and colour all the time and was in awe of nature.

It's a gas, by Nigel Smith

Chunky, and a bit crumbly

Nigel Smith’s story begins as a child, but it’s not until his 40s, when spurred on by family members at a time dealing with grief and mental health problems, that he puts his art in to action.

“Between Colour and Line” – Moscow Exhibition

“Between Colour and Line”, the pastel society in Russia, ran an exhibition in Moscow from December 13th-16th, with the help of Julia Dubinina, a seller of Unison Colour pastels in Russia.

2020 Guest Bloggers

After a successful series of guest bloggers in 2019 we would like to do the same in 2020.

Travelling with Pastels

Face-Off event at Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi “Face-off”

I was recently contacted by Gaye Sekula, a co-ambassador for South Texas for the Portrait Society of America (PSoA). She asked for my help in setting up a “Face-off” event on behalf of PSoA here in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Rebecca De Mendonça Book Competition Winner

We recently held a joint competition with pastel artist Rebecca De Mendonça to win her inspiring new book ‘Pastel for Absolute Beginners’.

What a Performer!

In Ireland we have a saying: ‘Tus maith, leath na hoibre’ – or, ‘A good start is half the work’. So true in the case of animal art.  Getting a good look at your subject and getting a good reference is often not only half the work, but also half the fun!

Swash Your Way to Creativity

I can’t even draw a stick figure.”

Have you ever said that? Have you ever heard someone say it? It’s usually said with a bit of embarrassed cynicism.
