Mt. Vision

Mount Vision Handmade Pastels Karl Kelly, the creator of Mt. Vision Pastels, started his career making handmade oil paints for one of the United States best known fine oil paint manufacturers. Karl says "I wanted to bring the vivid color and particular density of each pigment to pastel with the same high quality I applied to making paint." The Mount Vision Pastel Company was launched in the top story of an old general store in Mt. Vision, New York, in the Fall of 2000. Mount Vision Pastels have an intensity that rivals all other imported brands of pastels. They have a wonderful, soft, almost buttery feel; the pigment goes down without resistance and allows the build up of several layers.
