Pastels and Coloured Pencils

Pastels bring a warm and soft touch to portraits. I use the pastels as a base of vibrant colours within the portrait, and then I use coloured pencils to blend, and to add many layers of fine detail. 
I use high quality materials such as unison pastel and faber castel coloured pencils. They are great for bringing out the texture of soft, long fur, and for creating a beautiful glow of life from your portrait. Although pastel portraits are very delicate, your portrait will remain bright and vivid for over 75 years!
