Image View: Galleries open in new page. There are more oils on view than there are pastels – I suspect the website needs updating as the paintings that appeared in the Pastel Journal are not displayed yet. Thumbnail images are enlarged in a viewer. Information is generally provided on medium and dimension by hovering over the thumbnail but too much coding is visible – the webmaster needs to correct this. Images cannot be saved.
