Original Pastel Painting
18" x 12" (includes .25" border around)
Painted on Wallis Sanded Archival.
I am so attached to this painting, but I wish it would sell because it would encourage me to paint more! You artists can relate to that sentiment I am sure! Here's my blurb about it in my Etsy Shop where I have it for sale: This pastel painting has a wonderful feeling of light and depth. The layers of light and color float on top of one another. Even though the pigments are bright, it has an airy and soft quality to it. The brown in the background in real life is much more a Milk Chocolate Brown than a super dark brown as it appears on my monitor.
I have seen a couple of sparkles of what I am pretty sure is halogen glitter in the shadow where the beak touches the breast of the swan. The glitter came from these angels I use to make at Christmas time, and somehow they found their way into my painting. It's not big glitter, but really "ultra fine halogen". I tried to remove them, but when I tried they were so teeny I couldn't find them again, but it's all good because now I have grown fond of them and they are part of this painting. So if you buy this and find and remove the glitter, don't tell me please. I'm an artist, I can afford to entertain these sort of thoughts.
