So at this point, he is just making up his own definitions. What about resins or pastes?
The fact is that the International Association of Pastel Societies
and The Pastel Journal
define pastel artwork as paintings. Case closed.
From one of their sites... http://www.pastelinternational.com/
Throughout this site, you will see examples of the finest pastel paintings from around the world.
A pastel is a pastel and it is also a painting... just like a watercolor is more specifically a watercolor but also a painting.
