Pastel Drawing 75 × 50cm

The scene was drawn from a photo that was given to me by my girlfriend in Germany. This is what she saw on her early morning walk. I fell in love with the photo and decided to create my own interpretation in pastel.

    Hi Rita,
    Is this really a pastel, looks so wonderful. First glance I thought it was a photo-shop manipulation. That is NOT bad!!. its a very moody and beautiful work

    Fantastic work, cant wait to see more


  • Hi Diko,
    Thanks for your input I really appreciate it. Trust me its a pastel. I have never spent so much time on one piece of work like this one but it was worth it in the end

    Hi Rita!
    This is a haunting piece. The feeling it evokes in me is loneliness. It’s truly a captive piece. Thank you for sharing.


  • Hi Pixie-A,
    Thank you for taking the time to comment on my work. I appreciated your thoughts on the piece.
