I’m not a professional artist I have a full time job and am self employed which means my working day can, with paperwork etc be from dusk till dawn! However in the last year I have become addicted to my artwork!
What has this to do with this pastel painting ?
I was going nuts the other day wanting to create something but with no reference material I’m lost :( I normally like to use my own photos
I found myself browsing the Redbibble Gallery and came across a photograph which I found so striking I had to recreate.
The photographer is Earl McCall and I would like to thank him for allowing me to use his photo
It is not totally about getting a ‘likeness’ but I hope I have. Its about being inspired to put pastel to paper and creating something from within myself.
Thankyou Earl for the inspiration :)
