Sky blue pastel and white conte on dark blue Murano paper

I am a largely self taught artist from the East Riding of Yorkshire, UK. I tend to specialise in pastel life studies and still lifes – but that could change as the mood takes me. I am attracted by light, or more specifically by shadows, in my paintings. I hope you like what see see in the portfolio :)

    I agree with Sloan. A beautiful example of lost and found edges, beautifully composed and great textures too!

  • Thanks Mrs Willow. I was going to leave out the earing, necklace and pillow (laziness) but now I think they make the picture.

    Beautiful use of the one light available in Brid that day?! :) I love your work and especially the use of curvier models……brilliant!

  • What a put down. I have got two lights you know :) just don’t use both normally. I’ve got two models and a couple lined up before Christmas, none of whom are curvy I’m afraid, but just for you I’ll get this one back – she only lives over the road.

    I love your unusal colour on this one. You are brilliant with pastel and subject !

  • Thanks Beatrice. It’s the little extras that made it for me (necklace, earing and cushion). I’ll be expanding on that theme. Less people – more stuff.
