Pastels are made by mixing dry pigment with a gum binder and some filler to form a thick paste, which is fashioned into sticks and allowed to dry. These ingredients will differ based on pastel type and quality. Cheaper pastels will typically contain more binder and filler in the form of chalk or plaster. Artist-quality pastels tend to contain as much pigment as possible and very little filler, which is why they cost more and produce intense colors.
About The Artist
Darshaita is an artist by passion and a lawyer by profession. She discovered her artistic and creative side at the age of 6.
The Workshop Began
Darshita greeted all the participants and thanked the host for the introduction. She first started teaching mixing, layering, and feathering. She started sketching the Macau bird on the canvas and started coloring the bird in shades of blue, green, and yellow, as she continued to smudge the colors after coloring the background with purple, green, and blue color concluding her artwork.
Towards the End Of The Workshop
Darshita created a colorful blue color Macau bird as it looked pretty and massive. All the participants appreciated and showed their co-created artworks. Darshita showed her other colorful artworks. The Host thanked Darshita for teaching this art form.
The attendees were from different parts of the country. Also, they belonged to different age groups but their love for art brought them together on a single platform. The Circle Community, as always, was successful in connecting artists and curating a magical and positive vibe together.
