Pastel sketches are an integral part of my art making practice. These four small pieces are one step away from a larger, perhaps very much larger, oil painting.

Typically I’ll work out compositional and color issues in pastel where I can work very quickly and directly. Honestly, this is often where the unbridled creativity happens. Maybe that’s why I love these pastels so much! What do you think?

Feels good to have a pastel in hand again! I’ve been happily working away in oil to keep up with demand for my work. But it has been a long hiatus. Too long.

I think my work in general leans toward a decidedly intuitive approach to art making. But with the directness of pastel it becomes even more so. Sometimes it feels as though my oil paintings are trying to “catch up” with my pastels. I’m enthralled with this warm manganese violet color that turned up!
