Product Description:
UNISON PASTELS Emma Colbert Sets Emma is a portrait artist based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Besides portrait art, she has some illustration work and landscape and wildlife series. She is more inclined to painting animals, with most of her portraits being those of pets. Her collection, however, includes a series of Irish and British wildlife too. According to her, no better pastel builds up the effect of fur like pastel. She uses a combination of velour paper and Unison pastels to create the effects.

The main color pastels she uses in her work are the Unison Soft Color Pastels. These are her preferred choice because of her love for their color ranges and their unique buttery texture. The fact that they are soft but not too much so as to crumble allows her to create thin color masks by just leaning slightly. Heavy leaning allows her to bring out the strength out of a color unlike in any other medium.

The 16 Half Stick Set

This set unleashes a big range of possibilities when it comes to the types of animals that can be painted using just a small palette. The first row consists of light shades that are vital for reflective colors of white animals and, also, for highlighting while painting. The second row consists of cool shadow tones. We find the useful blues used for painting the highlight section of darker coats here. The third and the fourth rows provide you with a range of warm color tones that range from light to dark. One can find some of the most commonly used brown shades in these rows. The 16 Half Stick set gives you an excellent color combination that you can layer together or use directly to achieve various coat types.

30 Half Stick Set

This color set provides you with every color tone you would require in creating portraits of different animals. The first row comprises of all the light color ranges that you would need when painting white animals. These shades are, also, important for highlighting different animal colors. You can achieve more depth and realism in your painting by avoiding white as the main highlighting shade. The second row provides you with a set of cool shadows perfect for highlighting black and dark animals. The third row is composed of a range of vibrant warm tones that come in handy for highlighting brown animals. You will, also, get the fleshy pink for noses, ears and wet tongues. The fourth and the fifth rows are made up of a selection of cool and warm browns that range from light to dark. They can cover a range of brown shades that is common in many animals. This shade is perfect for painting horses, dogs, and wildlife. This set comprises of all the color shades anyone would require to for painting any animal. You can easily find the perfect palette for any animal by either using different colors directly or by layering the different color shades together.
