Welcome to my newest album, "Pastels-2010" I am so excited to be working in this medium and look forward to your comments. Pastels date back to the 16th century. Master artists such as Degas, Picasso and Rembrandt used this medium for their art. There are soft pastels, hard pastels and oil pastels. Presently, I am working with the soft and hard pastels. I have intentions of duplicating some of my original watercolor paintings using pastels so one may see a "duplicate" in another album under watercolors. Thank you for visiting and feel free to leave feedback.
