Pastel on slate grey Murano Paper

All Products

grey, female, pastel, figure study

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 :)

    Really great work Padrino.I love the dramatic lighting and the equally dramatic composition with the drape directing the eye path.

  • Thanks MrsWillow, I had six attempts at this one. It wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be.

    Another beauty my friend.
    Keep ’em coming.

  • Thanks Terry. It’s the first of a series of draped models for a local (very conservative) gallery.

    I’ve just spent a delightful half hour or so having a little browse around your work Alan, and I think I like this one the best!!!!

  • Thanks for the compliment and I’m glad you enjoyed them :) I still think I could have done better. Maybe I’ll go back to it one day.
