Diane Townsend Artists’ Pastels

Diane Townsend has been making hand formed pastels since 1972. The pastels are entirely handmade dry pastels and produced in small batches. Her pastels are not combined with a base of chalks, fillers or cheaper pigments. Diane’s emphasis is on maintaining the depth and clarity of each colour whereby attaining a richness, brightness and density unique to her handmade pastels.

Diane Townsend Terrages
Terrages is a combination of the words terra (for earth) and gesture. Terrages pastels are recommended for artists who wish to open the surface of the paper and work pigment into it. Terrages are made by adding pumice stone together with raw pigment. This combination creates a smooth rich transfer of pigment to the surface and adds an extra tooth to the surface from which build subsequent layers. Terrages pastels are made in a size and shape than can accept a more forceful application without crumbling and will last longer overall.
