Pastel art at Taylor Books


The Taylor Books Annex Gallery is showing some of my pastel art at this time. I'm not sure how long they will be up but if you are interested please stop by and take a look. The piece above is a scene from Castle Combe in the English Cotswolds.

I love that one, Rick!

Thanks! I do too... strange that it never sold. I did another pastel from that village and it sold via the Internet to a nice fellow who had just bought an old house in the town and was moving to Castle Combe from Bristol. (in that village, "old" means more than 300 years) I had to figure out how to ship a fragile pastel painting to England. It did make it ok finally.

What a beautiful collection! The use of black paper seems to make the colors so much more vibrant.

And thanks for that tutorial on how to photograph flat art. Very informative.

Yes... black paper... the first time I saw pastel on black paper I was attracted to the process. I just had to have a go at it. I got the idea from a very talented WV artist, Diana Suttenfield.
