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.

"Zombie Study" (5" x 7")
This painting was done for our weekly Dailypaintworks challenge. The challenge being to paint our version of "zombiness". I had so much fun I can't even tell you. I painted my zombies on the sandpaper that I use in an unfinished style that reminded me of the scary comics I used to read when I was a kid. I left the background unpainted because I just really liked the graphic feel. What a blast!!
