Virginia Paul- Pastels

Virginia Paul

As a teenager I enjoyed painting with pastels and drawing with graphite. After a 55-year hiatus, the urge to create with more color around on paper re-emerged. I used photography as my artistic expression for the last 15 years.

The internet is a vast source for instruction and inspiration; so I used my very old easel, new pastels and started my renewed source of expression.

My still life works are painted from real life set ups to help me avoid a “photo copy” look of my work and I am forcing myself to paint looser.
