Still Life Pastel paintings, with some notes on their genesis and progression.
Friday, November 15, 2013
More work has been done on the bowl, and the cup and fallen fruit are connected now by the shadow of the negative space between the objects. The colour cast is due to this photo being taken in a different light to the previous one.
This blog is a development from my pastel directory, www.artistsinpastel.com where pastel artists the world over are featured. It did not seem appropriate to post my own work there. Here is where I will post new paintings from time to time, with some notes on their genesis, and whatever else comes to mind.
I have been painting with pastels for 25 years or so, and have learned from the very practical publications of artists like Alan Flattmann, Daniel E. Greene, and more recently Richard McKinley and Ellen Eagle.
The work of other artists who work in the medium is always of interest, hence this blog, and I am happy to have met many of them, and interviewed some for the Pastel Journal.
Still Life is the subject matter that most interests me, and my pastels have been exhibited in Ireland, in France and in China.
