I have always been afraid of pastels as a drawing material. I thought it was something that wouldn’t give me control. But the last months I started feeling attracted to those beautiful boxes filled up with amazing colours. Last week I ordered a box of new drawing materials and I also ordered a box of pastels. Live dangerously, I always say. This is my first complete drawing with pastels. The partial self-portrait in ‘When the light goes out’ was actually the first. Flamenco? God, I love flamenco. Maybe because I move around earth with the grace of a lump of concrete.
