Here are two wonderful sets of pastels, passed on to me from my dear friend Anita, that were left in her mother's estate. The paper label on the inside of the Grumbacher set says "Set No. 6-60 Portrait Assortment" and "New Label Adopted 5/41." The smaller Mengs Pastell-Farben set says "Made in Germany" by Müller & Hennig, Dresden. The portrait colors are interesting because they're meant to represent subtle flesh tones as opposed to bright primary colors or rich earth tones for landscapes. When I had the idea to use them to add color to my crow drawings, I quickly realized I would have to improvise. What? NO PAYNES GRAY!!!
