Pastel

Technically, pastel is powdered pigment, rolled into round or square sticks and contained by methyicellulose, a non-greasy binder. When protected by frame and glass, pastel is the most permanent of all media, for it never cracks, darkens or yellows. Today, pastel has the same stature of oil and watercolor as a major fine art medium. Many of our most renowned living artists have distinguished themselves in pastel, enriching the art world with this beautiful medium.
