Hints & Tips from Denise Findlay

Hints and Tips

Unison Colour pastels are very build able. Try mixing colours by applying one on top of the other then use a blending stick to the 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.

Exploration

The dictionary defines a journey as an act of traveling from one place to another. This would seem to imply a start and an endpoint. For me, as an artist, there really is no ending to my travels.

Fragility and Brokenness

Having recently joined the Unison Colour community as an Associate Artist, I was excited to interact with other pastellists in Unison’s Facebook Group. Early on, I was intrigued by the comments on a fairly sad posting.
