I work in both pastels and acrylics. Pastels give me the soft, slightly out-of-focus look that I’m so attracted to and acrylics have a brilliance and vibrancy in color that look and feel like oils. Recently I’ve been using a palette knife to “carve” the paint onto the canvas creating a 2-dimensional effect.
A Summer’s day. I loved the way the wind was gently blowing the grasses and leaves in the trees; I wanted time to stand still – I was attempting to capture the feeling of all the senses engaged in being in this beautiful setting.
