Stone Water Sunrise
Painting - Soft Pastel On Paper
Stone Water Sunrise. Original signed soft pastel painting
When we first moved to the Island, the large rocks along the water's edge seemed like a beautiful and unusual rock garden--particularly when the lake was calm.
The rocks still feature prominently in many of my paintings. They are a reminder of the grand scale of time, and there's a strange comfort in their constancy--they've sat there just like that since long before I was born, and so they will remain, long after I 'leave'.
I was first intrigued by pastels early in 2007 when a fellow watercolourist started to get stunning results with this medium. Now soft pastels are my preferred painting medium---I love working directly with the pure pigment in mixing shades with my fingers. I love the direct, tactile involvement in creating textures and tones. It�s the closest painting has ever comes to sculpting for me in terms of the tactile + visual satisfaction.
