A Face A Memory A Rainbow Tree


A woman's face floats in a dark sky above a dramatic burning landscape and to the right, a tree's branches gently touch her face with the colours of the spectrum.
To the left, vivid red lips are about to kiss her's ... is it a memory or is it her second self?

Strong diagonal marks lead the eye from the bottom of the image, through the tree trunk up to the rainbow coloured branches which tenderly cup her face; it's as if she is listening to the tree, to the earth.
On the horizon I have suggested two little trees to represent twin souls or soulmates.

I have used compressed charcoal to achieve the intense black, then high quality chalk pastels and streaks of vivid Caran d'Ache pencil for the colouring. The main face is delicately highlighted with pale pencil.


One of the photos is a Computer Generated Image depicting the drawing hanging in a bedroom - I have digitally superimposed it on a large pastel of the exact size hanging there ...


The pastel is lightly sprayed with Winsor & Newton pastel fixative, packed very carefully.
