These pastel works are made either on BFK Rives or Arches France paper. These are mostly small works ranging in physical size from 6″x10″ to 11″x14″. The process for these paintings starts with toning one of these high quality 100% cotton papers with deep pigmented watercolors. Then a drawing is made with charcoal. Next comes usage of pan pastels, derwent charcoal pencils, and we have a finished piece.
In these works I aim to present a poem of the beauty of the figure to the viewer.
