Artists who work with pastels and charcoals understand the unique and captivating qualities of these mediums. From the soft and velvety textures of pastels to the rich tonal range achievable with charcoals, these materials offer distinct aesthetics for wonderfully expressive, beautiful works of art. Presenting these “dry” media comes with challenges, however, and doing so necessitates careful consideration of matting and framing elements.
