I liked the rawness of this. Pastel drawing on acrylic painted canvas

Features: Artistic Feminine Drawing and Painting
Contemporary Pastel Painters
Moody and Evocative Artwork
Every Day Women

I am an artist from the North Coast of NSW, utilizing my Graphic Design skills to generate thought processes in Adobe Photoshop. I then translate my designs onto canvas using mixed media, ie acrylic, ink, pastel, gold leaf etc. I also work intuitively with colour straight onto the canvas letting the flow of paint dictate the composition. I can relate to the Bowerbird, as I am drawn to blues and turquoises, collecting my treasures from the artists universe to produce my work.
