Fancy Portrait

Margaret Stockdale

Krambach, Australia

Artist's Description

Pastel on Fisher 400 pastel paper 64cm x 48cm(unframed)

I have used a combination of pastel pencils and sticks. I have found using pastel pencils a healthier option for me. They produce less dust, and using them on the Fisher paper, almost no dust at all. I mostly used the sticks for the background in this portrait. Doing this pastel was a real Godsend for me at present as my health has been awful lately, and this work has kept me going and it has given me a lot of joy.

The reference material for this work was supplied by brilliant American photographer Ron Mcginnis, who kindly gave me permission to use his photo of Fancy. His beautiful work can be seen at……. http://www.ronmcginnis.com
