I am a pastel painter. I chose this medium because of its immediacy and lightness. Pastel allows you freedom to build a richness of color in a single sitting that I did not find in any other kind of painting. It is the purest pigment in a soft medium that can still give you hard edges while maintaining its beautiful fluidity of expression.

Looking For Rosemary
"Looking For Rosemary"
20" x 10"
I have wanted to paint Barnsley House and gardens for many years. I have had this picture for ages and finally set myself to the task. Rosemary Verey was a talented garden designer and this was her house. She died years ago and now her home and gardens are open to the public. It feels like her garden is just waiting for her to return and tend to the cowslips and roses.
