Picasso himself chose the first 48 original colors, including eight distinct grays. Metallic and iridescent colors were added the 1980s. Sennelier has again expanded its colors in 2003, and this luxury wood box set contains every single one of them.
Sennelier Oil Pastels: Pablo Picasso wanted freedom. To paint without a brush. To create without needing to mix, tint or prepare. To experiment on every surface that was before him whether it be canvas, paper, metal, wood, stone or glass. This is what Pablo Picasso wanted and he went to Sennelier to get it. And so the oil pastel was born. Sensual. Creamy. Luminous. Intense. It is, hands down, Sennelier's fastest growing item simply because it is a universal medium û to watercolorists, oil painters and sketch and mixed media artists. Everyone loves them, anyone can use them û from children to students to professionals. The Grand size combines value, comfort and ease of use on larger pieces.
