Working with soft pastels can often be a joy as they take to the paper like a duck to water and blend together with ease, making this a fantastic, low-stress drawing medium.
There is a huge range of pastels to choose from including quality brands such as Conté, Rembrandt and Unison, all with varying degrees of softness, allowing you to choose the pastel that best suits your drawing style and preferences.
As soft pastels are simple to use and are not restricted by colour, they make an excellent drawing medium for a huge range of subject matter, and can be used on almost any surface as long as there is a small degree of texture making them a truly versatile piece of kit.
Many of the soft pastel sets available come in a choice of assorted, landscape or portrait ranges as well as different range amounts to provide you with the best selection of colours to suit the subject you are working with. If that’s still not enough, you can always top up your pastel collection with some loose soft pastels.
