Self-Portrait-2

- by H M Deckert

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: Self-Portrait-2 by Artist H M Deckert

20 x 30 Soft Pastel on Matt Board.

This portrait was done from a photograph taken by a friend. It is a play on the insight of the visual artist expressing things that are not in the field of vision. Subtitled "Blind Artist". it attempts to quantify the relationship of looking within to the outside world and its forces on the spirit of the artist.
