Art of the Day: Monday March 02, 2009


- by Kari Tirrell

This week's theme: Pastels

A stick of pure, ground pigment held together with a binder. Some prefer the more chalky soft or hard pastels. Some prefer oil pastels. All require practice, but in the right hands, pastels are a medium without peer.

Art: Frankie by Artist Kari Tirrell
This is my second entry into the 2008 Portrait Swap, the lovely Frankie Paquin. I had three photos to choose from, but this one appealed to me the most. It was also the most difficult composition, but I suppose that was part of the appeal. Frankie was painted with soft pastels on suede matboard.
