5.0 out of 5 stars These are beautiful pro artist pastel pencils
By lorraine cooper on 19 September 2020
I bought a small set a long time ago and I have used them every day in combination with my pastels. Now I need to replace I am going to buy the 72 set.
If I may, I would like to help people who are looking why pastels are different from coloured pencils as I noticed negative comments.
Firstly the pencils that you require are determined by their use. coloured pencils are that a true colouring or drawing pencil set. Used quite differently than than pastel pencils.
Pastel pencils for me, are used to add definition and in tandem with my pastels (soft not oil). The trick is to use them by holding the very end of pencil and gently skipping over the area that needs a bit more. by using them from the end and using no pressure (also charcoal works better using this technique ) they give a beautiful soft but vibrant laydown.
The picture above was a tutorial by Les Darlow a wonderful artist
Would I recommend them, heck yes. I would also recommend the pencils and the watercolour. In my opinion they are top of their class.
