Sea Nymph

Large wall canvas. Pastel, 2010.  Latest in my earth, air, water and fire themes. I’m afraid internet photo doesn’t do it justice and it is much longer than depicted here. For size and measurement reasons, I had to sacrifice the whole picture and the quality, but you get the general idea. It was a nice contrast to the darkness of the air godess, and it works well when viewed in its entirety.

Air Goddess

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

Large wall canvas. Pastel. 2009. I enjoyed creating Air Goddess much more than Earth Mother. It took a lot of black chalk with a wash to create my version of the creation of the universe and is the second in my earth, air, water and fire themes. I am very pleased with the results so far and have begun work on the next canvas, a water theme.

Earth Mother

Large wall canvas. Pastel. 2009. Earth Mother is the first in a series of works I have planned for a local studio. Experimentation of pastels on large canvas using various techinques and layering to achieve the desired results. I’m using larger chalks for bigger areas and the finer pencils for line work and eyes. Not as easy to achieve good results as with oils on canvas, but I am developing new skills to deal with any problems that arise.
