About this pastel:

I set out to do something bright and wasn’t sure what it would be. It started with a minimum of marks to work out the composition and then the colors were added in a very arbitrary way. As the work moved forward, the idea of blues and gold emerged but it wasn’t compelling or complex enough.


My idea was to put this together with unusual colors and once I applied the red-coral, the pastel came to life. It’s a simple design with an abundance of supporting elements, all to create what I set out to do, a burst of living color.
