Pastel paintings have a special ability to capture and convey a sense of atmosphere, something that can be extremely important when choosing work to decorate and enhance a living or office space. As the medium is somewhat softer than most, pastel paintings are often bold works, characterized by heavy impasto effects, meaning that they can be most effective when hanging on a wall. Popular with many famous artists, from da Vinci to Degas, pastels are loved for their broad range of bright colors, which gives the artist significant range and scope and makes the finished paintings especially vibrant. Sometimes, pastel may be combined with other mediums, to add a certain special sparkle and liveliness to the work.
