Nico sent me these beautiful paintings and they really do showcase the difference between the
oil and soft pastels.
"My name is Nico Matthysen and I paint with soft- and oil
pastels. I have learned that good quality pastels creates quality artwork. I have always been a
creative person admiring artist and the work they create. Since childhood I have always been attracted to
people creating art - being able to appreciate art in a special way. It is for quite a long time that I
have not created any art but since September 2015 started again. I am so much inspired by this medium and are
always looking forward to start a new project. I still have a lot to learn but I can already see the gradual
improvement in my work. This is so inspiring! I get my inspiration from nature, other artists and
pictures. I stay in Bethlehem, Free State Province of the Republic of South Africa."
