Pastels

Many people wonder what I use to create my drawings.   I use a number of tools in the creation of my work. I’ve collected quite a bit over the years and have some old favorites as well as some new discoveries. I’ve linked many of my supplies to either Blick Art or Amazon, for each item.  Although I am an affiliate for Blick Art, none of the Blick links below have my affiliate code, and I will receive no compensation for you buying from these links.   

Check out my Basic Tools list for things I use in all my mediums.
