    I truly marvel at your detail with pastels. Really impressed.

  • Thanks Jim. Sometimes I think I am too much of a stickler for detail, but my brain won’t let my fingers stop until it is ready!!!!

    stunning – look at the greens in the water – and the trees – amazing mastery of colour

  • Thanks ACG! I’m really thrilled you noticed the greens – I find green is the most difficult colour to render because there are so many variations!

    amazing detail – I am astounded at the detail you produce with pastels…they must be very pointed? I always thought they were quite thick ended. This is wonderful art.

    I am smiling at you Linda – No they are not pointed! I use the sides and sharp edges of broken bits. The first thing I do with a new pastel is get those wrappers off and break it into pieces. You can get the details by smudging and manipulating the pastel with your fingers paper stumps. I also use pastel pencils for some of the finer details in portraits.
