What are Pastel Pencils?
Pastel Pencils are an incredibly easy art medium to pick up and learn. The difference with pastel pencils opposed to pastel sticks is that they already seem a familiar tool to work with. Compared to other art mediums, which can be very messy, pastel pencils require no water or mixing of colours and therefore easier to use. Colin highly recommends Faber-Castell Pitt Pastel Pencils over other brands as they provide the perfect texture and flexibility when doing intricate work like you see on this website.
Pastel Pencils are simply an extension of the colouring pencils we all used as children yet the results are stunning. Want to see what pictures you can learn to draw if you become a member? Keep scrolling down to see the variety of subjects you can draw.
