Premier Nupastel® Hard Pastels

About this Pencil

Just Right

They’re tougher than traditional soft pastels, but maintain the same rich, creamy pigments needed for superior blending and shading. Artists of all expertise levels can benefit from these pastels, especially those interested in illustration or tightly rendered drawings. Because they can be used wet or dry, it’s like a two-for-one deal-- mix them with water or odorless mineral spirits to create cool effects.

As a young art student 40 years ago, my fellow students and I would go out to different locations with our sketchbooks and spend hours doing plein air sketches. Since cameras weren't digital we used these sketches for our future reference material. Now, when I can't think of a subject, I grab my sketchbook and head out. I learned more on these expeditions than anything I've ever learned in a studio.
