Medium: Pastel, oil
Subjects: Landscape; Seascape. I have rarely come upon a pastel artist with such a portfolio of paintings about sailing.
Style: Representational.
Navigation: A typical FineArtStudioOnLine site. This means that some of the links are generic and do not function if there is no content within (the Archive link is a case in point, but Plein Air, and Portrait are also empty). Main Menu remains available and the galleries are easy to navigate.
Gallery: Paintings: There are thirteen painting collections, and one on available prints. I don’t need to list them all, but do see China, and Venice - and don’t miss the one on sailing. What with the travelling, the sailing, rowing, and medical school images, I suspect that Kathleen’s art closely documents life experiences.
