Hints & Tips from Denise Findlay

Hints and Tips

Unison Colour pastels are very buildable. Try mixing colours by applying one on top of the other then use a blending stick to mix (also called a tortillon).

Do not forget to invest in a Unison colour White . No other pastel I have tried even closely matches. It’s consistency is almost creamy and a pure white colour and is easily applied as if it were paint, over areas with quite a lot of pastel already on it. This is why I chose to include it in the “Denise Findlay 18 colour set”.

What drives me?

I have a very strong drive and would happily lock myself away and for days working. I think my drive comes from the desire to achieve more. It is to me as important as eating and drinking, if not perhaps more! Drawing and painting is a necessity in my life and it feels like my reason for being.

Everyday life inspires me, beauty, emotions and light. Relationships prove to be a source of inspiration.

The Power of Greys

Greys are a vast and complex family of colours that seasoned artists spend a life-time of pursuit in order to achieve and harness their incredible potential.

The Power of Colour

Few things in life are more innate than colour – from birth to death, colour is a tremendous driving force in mankind. As a person with dyslexic traits, I value colours even more I guess then, say, mathematically biased brains.
