Perfect Pastels

 

In art, pastels are a specific type of medium. They are colors with low saturation but not necessarily the light, delicate colors we think of as pastel colors. While many pastels are light, they do not have to be. Any color that has a lower saturation and a high value is considered a pastel. Subdued colors fall into the pastel category as well.

In general use, pastel refers to any low saturation, light, or subdued color. The most common pastels are light shades of blue, pink, green, yellow, and lavender (light purple). Also, light orange or coral colors and light shades of turquoise are pastel Easter colors.

Pastel colors are considered springtime colors. They symbolize rebirth, new growth, and new beginnings.
