NuPastel on Hemp Paper

So I have some boxes of NuPastels which I mail ordered from America and until the end of last year, never really gotten to around using them. Nor have I never really liked them.

Although I hate pastels and charcoals, NuPastels are alot more gritty and more transportable. I carry alot of materials in my bag and I just hate it when there's vine charcoal dust everywhere.

And maybe it's the paper, but I really love the final effect. And you can use your kneeded eraser, stump and even water to throw it around. It's very forgiving (I find).

So yeah, this is a life drawing session predominately NuPastel and a bit of conte.

And here's a nice lady explaining the virtues of NuPastel


  1. Dear Nori,
    I LOVE your fine work as well as your caricatures. Thank you for the info on pastels.
    Cheers, Sadami

  2. thanks for the info! I echo Sadami's sentiments. I love your work.

  3. Beautiful! I think you're channeling Frédéric Back and The Man Who Planted Trees!
