Starter Kit for Painting With Pastels
Giving you a bit of an idea on how to get started
Before you even begin painting with pastels you need to know that it is a
medium you do want to work with.
So the first thing you should do is start with black and white and do some
sketches using just those two colors. Or you can get a set of Mungyo - Gallery set soft pastels of gray tone
or earth tone. Both these sets are brilliant to use and not expensive.
Choose a water color paper, maybe the Strathmore 300 series, 18 x 24 pad
of 12 pages.
Once you have decided that you want to delve further into painting with
pastels then the "Starter Kit" for pastels that I suggest would be:
Add to this black and white.
This will give you a set of 12 colors and you should be able to produce
great art with this selected palate.
I recommend that you start painting with pastels using a simple set of pastels and a practice
roll of paper. Once you get into colors try Rembrandt brand, they are a good pastel and not too
expensive even the seasoned pastel artist have some in their box - I do!
You can always add pastels as you need and as you develop your skills not
to mention your enthusiasm. So go ahead and start painting with pastels.
