PanPastel is popular for many drawing & sketching techniques.
Tone paper using PanPastel and one of the larger Sofft® Sponges (Angle Slice or Big Oval). Then use an eraser for subtractive drawing techniques.
Change line weight by varying pressure on Sofft Tools. Also manipulate sponges and use edges for different size marks.
PanPastel is a great way to block-in for underpaintings, for drawings and quick sketches for color studies.

“I also use different PanPastel Colors for my initial block-ins for my Premier Coup (Alla Prima) oil painting studies, because they offer the artist a multiple of color dry set-ups in which you can really build up beautifully rich texture and pure color oil paint strokes. No more melting into an underpainting’s wash.“ - DAVID KASSAN
