Medium: Pastels on velour paper
Size: 16″ x 12″ (unframed)
This artwork is painted on Vic Bearcroft’s pastel velour paper, specialized for pastel paintings. The pastel pigments bind greatly with the pastel paper, and little or no fixative is needed to secure the applied layers. However, pastel works should never be directly touched. They are best kept under a matted, glass-protected frame and away from high humidity, direct sunlight, or extreme heat.
What on Earth is a Pastel?
Pastel as an artistic medium is pure pigment dust held together by a transparent binder and formed in a stick or encased in a pencil. Pastel works age beautifully, their brilliant colour does not fade with the passing of time.
