Soft pastels are the traditional form of pastels. The ones I love most have a creamy, buttery texture, a very high concentration of pigment and their colors are wonderfully intense. They are formed into rounded crayon shaped pieces and are often wrongly labeled as a drawing medium for this reason. However, this is very much a painting medium, and I sell my work as such.
