In 2008, these flowers were drawn in blue vase, with pastel chalk. It is now in a beautiful dark brown wooden frame, that fits nicely.
Pastel is a soft chalk based on kaolin (porcelain) and pigment, which can be painted in a picturesque way. Artists who work with pastel chalk see their work as a painting rather than a drawing. Hearing the word pastel, you will soon think of pastel shades, but pastels are also available in bright colors.
