Unison Colour Soft Pastels
Why they are my pastel of choice. Cathy Pearce, Associate Artist of Unison Colour.
Out of all the pastels I have tried, Unison Colour Soft Pastels have a particular consistency, which is perfect for the techniques I use for painting. Meaning I am able to use the pastels wet or dry and with mixed media.
Unison Colour Soft Pastels are really very soft & buttery and they have an high pigment content, providing an exceptionally strong intensity of colour. Their colour range is truly extensive with 380 different colours to choose from. Take a look at Unison Colour's Colour Chart for full details.
Unison Colour Soft Pastels created by an artist John Hersey for artists and still handmade here in UK in Northumberland.
I paint with Unison Colour Soft Pastels every day and find them completely reliable. I am happy to use these pastels in demonstrations and to promote them to my students because of the surety of the products and the professionalism of the company. Futhermore, I trust that promoting Unison Colour as the brand of pastels I use, gives purchasers of my work confidence that my paintings are light fast and resilient to fading in the sunlight.
This is why it is such a huge honour for me to now be an Associate Artist of Unison Colour and have that recognition of my work from the brand, which is my favourite. I am thrilled to be able to work with them more closely, to recommend their products through my workshops and to write blogs for them about how I use their extraordinary pastels.
