Nine artists explore this unique medium
By Albert Handell and Anita Louise West
Pastel does not refer to pale colors, as the word is commonly used in the fashion and cosmetic industries. Pastels are made with exactly the same pigment used to make all art paints. Powdered pigment, mixed with a little water and a special binder, is ground into a paste, rolled into sticks, and left to dry. The name comes from the French word pastiche, meaning paste. It is a painting medium with a full range of artistic possibilities. In the hands of a skillful artist.
