Pastel Trunks

Picture Name: Pastel Trunks
Where Painted: In studio at home from a photo
Medium: Pastel on grey pastel paper
Size: 16ins x 20ins inclusive of mount. Supplied framed under glass in a plain 1 inch black frame.
Inspiration: I first painted these tree trunks, from a photo taken at Baron’s Craig Hotel in Rockcliffe, in watercolour. I was drawn to the abstract pattern of them and the when I was working on the watercolour I thought the subject would also lend itself to a charcoal drawing. I later over-painted the charcoal with pastels as part of an exhibition on the theme of pastel over charcoal at the Tolbooth, Kirkcudbright. The colours were largely from memory and imagination as the photo I was using was quite faded.
Price: £150 (including frame and p & p)
