About a Medium: Soft Pastels

When I returned to painting after a pause of many years, I instantly became fascinated by pastels. The immediacy of the medium is what made me fall in love with it. When using pastels, the artist works and communicates directly through the pigment.

The following video describes the manufacturing process of the famous Henri Roché pastels. They are truly the best of the best. The brand is still owned by the founder’s descendent, and hence the original quality of these pastels is maintained. It is wonderful to see how much of the original manufacturing tradition has lasted till this day. Enjoy viewing this process.
