Creating Memories

It is early days for my pastel art journey. I consider myself a complete novice when it comes to working with pastels, especially soft pastel, there´s so much to learn but I´m really looking forward to it.

Combating Cookie Cutter Conifers

No matter how I tried, my conifers always looked flat and uninspired, not unlike a green frosted sugar cookie.

Imagination-Building Exercise

Like any artist, I experience various states of creativity – both euphoria from good moments and satisfaction from my work, and disappointment and devastation from the fact that nothing works.

Unison Colour Pastel Colours that Pop!

Each artist has their own colour palette and color preferences. Those who are familiar with my art style know that I do like incorporating bright vibrant colours into my artworks.

Sketch pads, Pause Buttons & Pastel Dust

How many times however do we see something and regret that we didn’t bring paper and pencil with us. Not all of us can be like Toulouse Lautrec who could doodle on the menu card at the Folies Bergere.

Out with the old and in with the new!

How many of you have had a soft pastel painting/s, which are framed and possibly have been in an exhibition and / or galleries over a period yet are returned unsold?
