Medium: Pastel. “Soft Pastels are a very expressive medium. Working on a soft white Stonehenge printmakers’ paper I use my hands to blend large washy areas then add detail on top of these. I like to contrast bold scribbling strokes with softly blended areas. A painting is never finished in one session. I come back to each painting at least ten times. Unfinished paintings are stacked on a shelf with glassine between each one. There are always about 60 unfinished paintings in the stack. My thinking and mood each morning dictate my work for the day.”
