These pastel art picks are super fresh, peaceful + playful.


Landscape with Rainbow by Robert S. Duncanson

April’s just one week away, which means the pastels have really come out to play. You’ve probably spotted them adorning Easter candies in the checkout aisle, or popping up in the park in the form of flowering bulbs. Where you might not be admiring them yet? Your walls. Let’s remedy that paucity of pastels.

Here’s the thing about pale hues. If you’re a little color-shy, they’re the perfect way to break out of the neutrals box without stepping too far outside your comfort zone. Ballet pink, mauve, mint green, peach, periwinkle, butter yellow, light blue—don’t overlook this first-rate color family. Pastels are soothing, cheery, and remind us of spring because they feel so very fresh. And if the past success of Millennial Pink meant anything, it’s that pastels are more versatile and visually pleasing than we often give them credit for. Pastels: not just for Jordan almonds!

Browse our pastel art picks below, and add a little color to your collection. All’s well that ends pastel!

With art for everyone,
