Johannes Vloothuis uses PanPastel for his pastel paintings, as well as for mixed media including for highlights on his watercolor paintings.
“When I met PanPastel Colors it was love at first try. This medium is the easiest to work with of them all. It behaves like a blend of oils and watercolor which means you get the best of both worlds.”

My grandfather was a painter, illustrator, and professor. I grew up sitting on his lap watching him draw. It fascinated me. I had an amazing (and patient, ha) art teacher in high school that nurtured my abilities and helped me create a portfolio that was awarded several scholarships to major art schools.
