Soft Pastels

It would be unfair for me to say that I know everything about Soft Pastels because to be honest with you I have only been using them for a few weeks. However with that in mind I can safely say that I love them, this is for me.  I love the great ability to blend and work the pigment you have on the page whenever you want as well as having the ability to add more layers to it, furthermore with the pastel pencils you can add a great sense of detail, as you would with normal colour pencils. In terms of adding detail to my coloured work I have always used coloured pencils however I like the more broad use of being able to add detail and block in a great amount of pigment, furthermore you can mix together more colours so there is an endless array of colours. With all this in mind it does sound like the perfect medium for anyone however it is quiet a flight medium and if you enjoy the thickness of Oil paint then this probably isnt for you, all in all thought I love it :)
