  1. Hi Sophie. I just voted for Sennelier in your pastel poll. Here’s why: Sennelier is my absolute favourite….closely followed by Unison pastels (have to admit I haven’t tried some other brands, like Shmincke as would run out of money if I tried them all!) I love the softness of Sennelier and the fact that you can push the pigment around with a brush…making for a more painterly surface. Colours are beautifully subtle too.
    Love your blogs btw ❤️
