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.

Happy Accidents?

Several years ago, 2012 to be precise, my pastel painting took a side road off the path I had been following for a long time.

Portraiture and Unison Colour Soft Pastels

My travels developed in me a love for the Human face in all its myriad colour and contours. People all over the world share a common humanity we seem to have forgotten. Merriment in a child’s eyes are the same in Iraq as Panama.

Locked Down and Dirty

One of the good things about lockdown this year has been reducing the commute between me and my Unison pastels.
