Townsend Pastels are hand made pastels for artists. Based on an 15 century Italian formula, Townsend has spent the last 30 years refining the formula to create a smooth, flowing pastel that is as rich in pigment as possible. Choose from three types of pastels; Soft Form Pastels, Terrages, a larger pastel with added pumice which enables the artist to open up the surface of paper and work in more color, and lastly our new Thin Line Pastel, a pencil-like pastel perfect for detail and delicate work. Pastels are available individually and in box sets through your local art store.

One of the most interesting facts about color blindness is about inheritance of the disorder. Color blindness is one of the genetic disorders in humans. As the most common form of this deficiency is related to X chromosome or color blindness chromosome, color blindness tends to be more common in males than in females. But color blindness genetics also suggest that even though women are not color blind themselves, they are very active carriers of color blindness. Interestingly, a mother is bound to pass her red-green color blindness to all her sons, but its less likely for the father to do the same.
