Pastel colors allow the artist to focus more on broad areas of color.
The third one …
Not an expert, but I choose “Pastel colors allow the artist to focus more on broad areas of color.”
I think it is the first one actually. Pastels are applied without any binder, they are just rubbed from the stick directly onto the paper. Also, they are loose and therefore tend to lighten over time (I know this because I have some pastels left over from high school art class, and they are REALLY fades).
