Pastel on Mie Teintes pastel paper

Thought I would upload this one just because it is Melbourne Cup Week! I apologise for the poor image, but this is an early ‘Robinson’ and I didn’t have a very good camera back then.

I am a pastel artist living in country Victoria, Australia. My subjects vary, ranging from landscapes, portraiture, animal studies, figurative, life drawing, still life and I find the challenge of painting water particularly enjoyable.
