A question for other artists, do you consider that Pastel art is drawing or painting, I have always thought of it as painting but most sites seem to put it under drawing ?     If you use watercolour pastel pencils this would get even more complicated  [biggrin]

I used to do a lot of pastels years ago before it was A LA Mode

At that time I used to say they where my dry paint.

I still have certain colors bits of dry pastels that I can no longer find

There are so many colors now and that a lot of people do not know that they can be mixed primary colors on paper to create new colors just like paint.

Your pastels will probably turn up now you have thought about them again, I only started using them at the beginning of this year.

Someone gave me a set of Inscribe pastels that I liked using but found restricting, I researched them and tried a different make but found they just crumbled in spite of being expensive so turned to a UK make, Unision, and promptly fell in love with them but still like acrylics as well .

Does anyone else use them - what do you call the resulting pictures - paintings or drawings ?

Its a dry media so it is drawing. Pastels can be found in with the drawing supplies at the store not the painting supplies.

So that is the different between drawing and painting?   I use mine as a wet and dry media though, not every picture but quite often, especially for underpainting [biggrin]

I always thought of them as paintings because I use with water. Ending result to me is a painting. Drawing to me is lines with shading, not blending. I mostly do mixed media so I do not have to decide which they are. LOL

I blend with drawing all the time...charcoal, colored pencils, pastels, all are blended to get shading. There is line drawing but that is only one type of drawing.
