Pastel on Colourfix Paper (Burgundy) 50cm x 35cm
Can you believe that I received a commission from someone in France to paint their sister in Sydney (and I live near Melbourne)!!! This was a birthday present from RedBubbler Corinne Pouzet for her sister Colombe Cambourne (also a RedBubbler).
Both these ladies are magnificent artists, and Colombe does incredibly good portraits, so it was with some trepidation that I posted the finished work off to her husband (there was so much skulduggery going on to keep it all a secret)! I did the painting from a photograph that Corinne sent me. (I usually prefer to ‘see’ my subjects for myself, but in this case it wasn’t possible)…
