It is uncanny how you were just thinking “What is a Pastel anyway?”. That though had occurred to me as well, so I HEY GOOGLE, HEY SIRI, and Wikipediaed my way to a definitive answer. Still somewhat uncertain I thought it wise to check with the folks at Pantone. Having declared the colour of the year for 2024 to be Peach Fuzz I assumed they would have the best answer. Then it occurred to me that ‘hands on learning’ is often the best teacher so I, HEY MOTHER NATURE’d my way outside before the crack of dawn. (Yah.. I know… big deal in mid January.) Setting up a crash course in pastel understanding turned out to be revealing. Here are the results of spending an hour with the Mother of all teachers.
Early morning at the weir in Saskatoon. What a great way to lift my spirits for a full day of joy.
Thanks for sharing in my Pastel Party.
