The Versatility of Unison Colour Pastels

I have been using Unison pastels for over 20 years now. I certainly consider them my favourites plus the best on the market!

The Versatility of Unison Colour Pastels 1

In that time I have explored them in many ways including; traditionally on pastel papers, on glass paper, on velvet paper, over acrylic inks on hot pressed watercolour paper, over watercolour and china graph pencil for snow scenes, using water with them on watercolour paper and working over watercolour.

Unison pastels are so versatile and come in strong well designed boxes which means they are invaluable when travelling as all I require are my watercolours, brushes and my set of Unison pastels to use on various watercolour papers with the paints or without! The set I have chosen enables me to take on any subject in any country and still capture the light, mood and atmosphere. This has included snow scenes in Norway, Caribbean scenes in Barbados, Spain, New Zealand, Quebec, Ireland, Scotland, Hebrides, Savannah, Portugal, Cuba and recently, Florida to name a few. With the majority of my work being produced in England. Let me share a few examples with you.

Turning Points

When we think back on our artistic life and how we began and progressed, which for me started 42 years ago; a huge part of our journey is the milestones and turning points we experience.
