Pastels

The World is Full of Energy, Waiting for Our Senses to Notice

These works span a few decades from 1977 til now.

These are selected highlights from hundreds of my pastels. They were all drawn live on location, plein air, in under an hour (before the light changes the shadows and the original impression). Almost all of them are drawn on dark papers, which I like because it feels like applying pure light energy. Even yellow on white paper is darker than the paper which kills the luminosity for me. I developed a unique style of mark-making in stripes, no blending, and a unique approach to color theory through truthful observations of the warmth and coolness of lights and shadows. An important part of personal and theoretical evolution for me is furthering my knowledge of light and color based on real observations.
