Laleh Kamalian – “Pastel is one of my two media of choice. Using their excellent blending properties and vibrant colours they are perfect for painting portraits, still life and landscapes in any style, from the most detailed realism to impressionist or even abstract styles. With the availability of a wide verity of soft pastel products, from pastel pencils to sticks and Pan Pastels, it gives the artist the opportunity to use one individually or combined to create from small details to hazy backgrounds on a large canvas.”
