A break from portraits – Still Life Pastel Painting

I received a wonderful gift for Christmas Рa boxed set of 150 Art Spectrum pastels (thanks Dad & Les!). I feel very spoilt but also inspired to experiment  with all that colour!

I thought I’d have a break from portraits and play around a little more in this pastel painting focussing on colour, light and shadow.

I find still life subjects more challenging than portraits – all that symmetry!! – but am fairly happy with this one nonetheless.

Here is today’s effort.
