Pastel Portraits

Pastels are pure pigments mixed with binders and have been in use since the Renaissance (think really, really good chalk). They add a lifelike dimension to the work and are a classic option for children’s portraits. I love creating these pieces and thinking about the life that the art will have as it is passed down from generation to generation.
