All Media: Pastel Paintings

Pastel paintings are beautifully expressive and can be created with soft or hard pastels, pastel pencils, or oil pastels. Instrumental in the artist's conveyance is the hardness and sharpness of the medium, the angle and amount of pressure applied, the texture and color of the support, and the direction and fluidity of the artist's stroke. The result may be a work of art that is vigorous and full of life or delicate and controlled.
