Soft pastels on colourfix from an inspiring photo from morguefile by luisrock62

This is now a tweaked version ( mouth nose and chin!) photographed in daylight !


pastels, child, emotion, gazing

Although I have only been using pastels for a couple of years the demand for my pastel portraits seems to be increasing so I have decided to focus on this aspect of my art during 2012 and am devoting a ‘spare room’ to making pastel dust in Ivy Cottage as well as The Kington Gallery ! To have received an ‘Artist of the Month’ award this January in ‘Painters Universe’ here on Red Bubble is a humbling and wonderful Kick Start to 2012

    Cathy and Jim… thank you SO much………I’m very glad I didnt stop at the’ really really ugly’ stage .. though it was a close run thing !!! I was enjoying ( in a frustrated sort of way!) playing with some new pastels !
