Passage to India | Pastel Gallery

British artists Patrick Cullen, Felicity House and June Arnold have been lured back to India time and again, and have produced some amazing paintings from their travels. Artists with different styles and interests, they share in the December 2014 issue of Pastel Journal what attracts them to the world’s second most-populous nation, without ignoring some of its challenges. They also reveal what they pack in their pastel kits and how they adapt their regular painting routines—and subject matter—to embrace all that the exotic country has to offer, as seen in the gallery below.
