Original Pastel Drawings
Pastel drawings are created using coloured chalks or oil based binders. A chalk pastel drawing can be very detailed or very impressionistic thanks to the versatility of the medium. Many of the Impressionist painters, such as Degas and Manet, worked in pastel as it is easily transportable and is mixed on the paper, allowing for bright and contrasting colour compositions to be achieved.
Oil pastels can be similarly expressive but give a waxier texture to the picture that can be scratched into for a sgraffito effect.
