If you are just getting started with pastels you may not have many pastels or you may not wish to invest a lot of money right away. You can paint with a small set of limited palette pastels! In February 2020 on my Patreon Page we explored a budget set of 16 pastels. I am now releasing this Patreon demo video to show you how you can paint a marsh with a very limited set of pastels!

Consider joining me on Patreon for much more on working with budget pastels sets! This year I will be reviewing moderate priced sets! I just ordered 3 half stick sets from Dakota Pastels and I can't wait to use them!
I used the Daler Rowney set of 16 pastels for my demos and lessons. I am told that the Blick brand soft pastel is the same. You can find a similar set here: https://www.dickblick.com/items/blick-artists-soft-pastel-set-assorted-colors-set-of-15/
