Rebecca De Mendonça Book Competition Winner

We recently held a joint competition with pastel artist Rebecca De Mendonça to win her inspiring new book ‘Pastel for Absolute Beginners’ which The Artist magazine says ‘is one of the best & most comprehensive books on pastel there has been for a long time – possibly ever’. Alongside winning the book was also the chance to win a Unison 36 set.

Artists were asked to submit a picture that had an autumnal theme. We were overwhelmed with entries. Rebecca said ‘it was great to see how everyone had interpreted the challenge, and a pleasure to see lovely pastel work. It was very difficult to pick a winner’.

The winner was Tatsiana Kashtalyan with her painting ‘Lake in the Fall’.

Rebecca loved the simplicity & calm of the piece, and the variety of mark making that gives a great sense of depth. The use of light & dark in the foreground, & softer more subtle tonal contrasts in the background all make it a beautiful painting.

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.
