Pastel on Murano Paper. Commission, reproduced by kind permission of the subjects.

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 :)

    Very strong creation that carries with it the powerful emotions of the subjects.
    You are a master!

  • Thanks Terry, but I’d settle for being a competant apprentice.

    Wow, I do love this painting! I am fascinated by the red jewellery with light and shadows in it! Not much space to achieve this in Pastel.

  • Thanks Béatrice. Pastel pencils carefully sharpened :) The couple have split up and I’ve no idea where the painting is now. C’est la vie :)
