Pastels are very different to oils, they do not drip but become cloudy and require fixative..some works do not need hardly any yet some after many layers feel deeper and the colours darken . Was about to work on some new pieces but my sheepdog Sparky has just jumped in the boot and dented all the paper
The image is vaguely of a rabbit and also a lady. Being lucky to live in from of woods that are at a distance of 800m one can just recognise the detail and also the density due to it being 13th Saxon and on a ridge so one gets the spring colours from the front-the hawthorns and shrubs become green first and the ash and oak alot later . The incline of the wood is approx 20 degrees so from a distance we can see the front and back which gives more information than just at eye level ..so your bargaining with density for enchantment.
The pastel is named Woodland Falling because even in Spring trees are cut for clearings to be made. The woods are private so there is always the feeling of being shot when looking for Sparky who goes missing every time and is never really that pleased to see me , as though he knew where I was all the time.
Sadly I lost a friend who was 33 , she committed suicide a month ago , was a Piano teacher and once a county tennis player and had two amazing rabbits .
We have recently discovered a white squirrel in our garden and there are only 25 or so in the Uk so very rare indeed and will photograph it but I do not like zoom lenses , only prime so will have to be patient . The eyes are pink but I may change them to green if I ever painted a Squirrels Tea Party and resurrect our poor tortoise Fred (another story for another time). #whitecubeofficial #interiordesign #Marlboroughgallery #hauserwirth #artcurater #yusaku2020 #casterlinegoodmangallery #art #urbanart #artist #abstract #artdealer #artgallery #expressionism #privatecollection #lot180 #simondepury #Artrandomizer #serpentinegalleries #artcollecting #artasia #artpatrons #artadvisoryservices #luhringaugustinegallery #tanya.baxtercontemporary #maddoxgallerylondon #maddoxgallerygstaad #abstractpastel
