“Unison Soft Colour Pastels are the main pastels I use in my work. I love their range of colours and their buttery texture. They're soft but not so soft they crumble. When I lean lightly I can create thin masks of colour. When I lean heavily I can get such a strength of colour like no other medium.”

16 Half Stick Set. This compact set will enable you to paint many types of animal with a relatively small palette. Row 1 has an important selection of light shades, vital for highlights and reflected colours in white animals. Row 2 provides cool shadow tones and useful blues for painting the highlights on darker coats. Rows 3 and 4 give you a range of warm tones from light to dark including some of my most commonly used brown shades. With this small set you should have a good combination of colours to use directly or layer together to create many coat types.

30 Half Stick Set This comprehensive set covers every tone you will need to create many different types of animal portrait. Row 1 includes the all important light range vital for painting white animals, but also useful for highlights on every colour of animal. Avoiding white as your main highlight will add more depth and realism to your paintings. Row 2 gives you a full range of cool shadow tones also useful for the highlights on dark or black animals. Row 3 provides a range of vibrant warm tones useful for highlights on brown animals, right through to a selection of fleshy pinks vital for inner ears, noses, and wet tongues! Rows 4 and 5 include an extensive selection of warm and cool browns from light to dark which will cover the vast array of brown shades we see in every animal from dogs, to horses and even wildlife. This set is neatly comprised of my favourite shades for animal painting and whether you use the colours directly as they are, or layer them up together, you will not struggle to find any animal's palette in this selection.
