It's easy to go off on a tangent with a medium as beautiful and colorful as pastel. It has a lot in common with oil paint and yet some drawbacks must be considered. It is, in my opinion, a drawing medium although they refer to it as painting. This is from a workshop with pastelist Eve Miller of Beaufort. The picture is a Victorian era (I think) house on Broad St. near Colonial Lake where there is a row of white houses with fantastic shapes and details.
