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.

Cliff Top View
"Cliff Top View" (5" x 7")
The reference for this painting was taken from the cliff tops in Truro on the Cape. It feels like you can see forever. There was great color in the grasses and scrub brush so that's what I concentrated on.
