Oh boy, I’m so very excited about these! You can’t beat a new pastel set. I’ve loved pastels since I was a little girl. The feel of them are so different than anything else. Each one with brilliant color and they can be manipulate in a variety of ways.
I am so grateful to actually be able to get these. Quality tools always matter, they can make things easier or better. These pastel sticks are loaded with pigment, are easy to blend and just feel wonderful. So simple and yet so complicated. An unforgettable experience for me. I’ve always wanted such an extensive set.
New Works with a New Pastel Set
This is one of my first works with these new Sennelier Pastels. I started this particular piece a long time ago with some pastels that were not quite the best. The difference when I applied these pastels to the old drawing was unbelievable., they flowed like butter onto the paper. I had no problem getting the colors and brilliance I was shooting for. Now I understand the meaning of pastel “painting”.
Do yourself a favor if you are in the market and give them a try. Sennelier 40 Half Pastel Boxed Set They have many different size sets with sets geared towards landscape or portrait painters, therefore I may be in the market soon for a plein air set. Like this one Sennelier Oil Pastel 36 Plein Air Wood Box.
This piece was done with alcohol and a paint brush. I laid down where I wanted my colors and then pushed around the pigment. It was great fun and I can see myself doing more of these because I really like the look of this. I found it free and inspiring, without a doubt, these are the best I’ve ever used
