Chalk pastels on Somerset 300 gsm paper

I was given a gift of chalk pastels in 1986 and  I loved them immediately; it changed the way I worked for years.
Not being content to produce small ‘pastel-coloured’ pieces, I exploited their rich colours and loved the fact that I got my hands right into the colour!

Here below are a few examples from over the years; these days I tend to paint more on canvas or linen but still use pastels occasionally. Like the one above and below, there are lots more available to view and buy on here:  Artfinder
