Soft pastels

Description

As an artist, I relish a challenge. This and the absolute spontaneity of having a live model pose for an artist group, timer is set (anywhere from 5 minutes, to 30) - and off you go. No time for pre-drafts, no tutor, no rules. Choose your own medium. Here I've used soft pastels, a pure form of art, of sketching, of drawing, of painting. Some 'refine' after time expires, but I choose not to. The beauty of the human form, unconstrained.
The image size is as shown, but there is extra paper past image size, under the mat, to allow re-matting if desired. Currently professionally matted in deep chocolate brown, with backing - ready to be dropped into a frame - mat size approx. 42.5 cm (H) x 33cm (W). The artwork is only secured at the top. I choose a natural look, like using the brown Kraft paper - it's not perfectly smooth, and I also don't use pastel fixative. I prefer to keep my pastels bright and crisp.. Handle with care upon delivery.
