A Few Words About Pastel Paintings. . . .
 
The word “pastel” comes from the French word “pastiche” because pure powdered pigment is ground into a paste with small amounts of gum binder and then rolled into sticks.  Pastel paintings are created by stroking the sticks of dry pigments across an abrasive ground - paper, sand board or canvas - embedding the color in the tooth of the material.  When the ground is completely covered with pastel, the work is considered a pastel painting.
