Cathy Pearce Colour Wheel 18 Small Stick Soft Pastel Set

The aim of the colour wheel set is actually to help you learn the basics of colour theory.



The aim of the colour wheel set is actually to help you learn the basics of colour theory and not as an ultimate set of colours with which to paint every picture. As you will probably already have experienced although you can change a colour, it’s very easy in this medium to make a colour more dull, it is very difficult, in fact impossible, to make a colour brighter. With this in mind this set of colours also gives you the bright, saturated version of the main colours which will be a really useful accompaniment to your existing pastel collection. The black, white and four greys will allow you to make tonal sketches in advance of your paintings in order to achieve all the correct tonal values when choosing your final palette.

Please do bear in mind that our pastels are hand made from a variety of traditional pigments, all of which have their own characteristics. This means that size does fluctuate ever so slightly, and the softness varies between the different colours. We do, of course, keep well within our criteria for the perfect pastel, but if the pastels you’ve received don’t quite live up to your expectations, please get in touch and we’ll make sure it’s put right.
