PASTELS & CHARCOAL Soft Pastels Pastels are one of the simplest and most essential painting systems. Color refraction capacity remains almost intact and, in general, proportional to softness. A key protagonist in brush-free works, a way of combining design and painting, linked to the gestures and patience of the hand of the artist, the immutability of pastels is unparalleled, since they are totally free from the yellowing effects of binding agents. And yet nothing, not even their considerable stability, can mar their unstoppable lightness, that diaphanous and luminous effect which makes pastel creations so timeless, set in their shining dust. 96
