Artist's Description

Pastel on a scrappy piece of brown Canson paper!

This painting was a total fluke from a few years ago! I had bought four new Schminke pastels and I wanted to try them out – there was a pale blue, a pale yellow, a creamy colour and a dark brown. I used a scrappy piece of paper left over from another painting and started doodling! The face just emerged, and I thought she looked sort of ‘aloof’ and ‘Art Deco-ish’ I looked through an old book about fashion, and found some drawings of 1920’s headgear. I just added a bit of light here and a bit of dark there, smudged around a bit and there she was! I thought she needed a dangly earring, so I hung what is actually a pendant on the edge of my easel and used that. Amazing how a bit of scribble can turn into something! I won’t part with it, and my son has claimed this painting when I die!
