NEW Contrast 8 Soft Pastel Set

NEW Contrast 8 Soft Pastel Set 1

A handy set of 8 Unison Colour soft pastels that enable you never to be without those key light and darks such as Grey 28, Carbon Black 1 and the ever useful Additional 49.

This set has been chosen and designed by our colour experts to be an addon to one of your larger sets or simply as a handy small set with the colours that you need to create monochrome pieces or to add those light or dark touches to your pastel work.

I am forever telling my students to “round out” their collections with more of the lightest lights and a good set of darks. This small set will be the ideal addition to a plein air box or to a set that one would be carrying to a workshop. Fantastic!!

Discovering Reflected Color

When asked to identify the color of a shadow, it is common to respond that it would be a darker color of whatever is in shadow.  A shadow of a tree on green grass would be a darker green.  A shadow of the same tree on dirt would be a darker brown.

Garden of Colour and Flight

On two sides looking out the windows is the woods, the view begins not four foot off the sidewalls where trees and open forest floor slope up and gently away. When the spring rain comes, water gathers in the high places and forms water falling streams that run toward and alongside the studio heading toward gathering ponds on the lower side.
