Emma Colbert Animal 30 Half Stick Set

This comprehensive set covers every tone you will need to create many different types of animal portraits.


In stock


Emma is based in Belfast, Northern Ireland and works as a portrait artist alongside illustration work and her series of wildlife and landscapes. Emma’s favourite subjects to paint are animals and she enjoys painting many pet portraits as well as series of British and Irish wildlife. Using a combination of Unison pastels and velour paper Emma says there is no other medium quite like pastel for building up the effect of fur.

This comprehensive set covers every tone you will need to create many different types of animal portraits. Row 1 includes the all-important light range vital for painting white animals, but also useful for highlights on every colour of the animal. Avoiding white as your main highlight will add more depth and realism to your paintings. Row 2 gives you a full range of cool shadow tones also useful for the highlights on dark or black animals. Row 3 provides a range of vibrant warm tones useful for highlights on brown animals, right through to a selection of fleshy pinks vital for inner ears, noses, and wet tongues! Rows 4 and 5 include an extensive selection of warm and cool browns from light to dark which will cover the vast array of brown shades we see in every animal from dogs to horses and even wildlife. This set is neatly comprised of Emma’s favourite shades for animal painting and whether you use the colours directly as they are, or layer them up together, you will easily find any animal’s palette in this selection.

Dear Customer

For over 30 years Unison Colour has taken great pride and pleasure in supplying artists soft pastels to discerning artists all over the world.

Whilst endeavouring to use only the most reliably beautiful and long-lasting ingredients we are now in a situation where global matters have disrupted our once easy flowing supplies.

Our main concern is the critical availability of Cobalt based pigments. We are enduring much stronger competition with new technology demanding resources for the production of lithium-ion batteries and also synthetic fuels. These innovations will be both lifesaving and earth saving in the future. The element Cobalt is of major importance in emerging technology and although artists have used Cobalt-based pigments for centuries we may have to learn adapt and to use alternatives.

Currently approximately 10% of Cobalt resources are used in the manufacture of pigments – as art material manufacturers we recognise that there will be unavoidable impacts on this. Global trade relationships are challenging. Processes and capabilities engineered by our suppliers are constantly being improved with much recent investment in efficiencies. This has however increased the cost of these valuable ingredients. We have until very recently absorbed the rising price.

Accordingly, there may be times ahead when there could be difficulties with obtaining some of our range. We will continue to aim for consistent stock where at all possible whilst recognising the challenges ahead may be beyond our control.

We very much appreciate your ongoing support and will continue to strive to bring you the very best in artists pastels. Thank you for your anticipated patience during these challenging times.
