Shades of Red



Shades of Red is an original pastel painting done from a live model in my studio. I added red pastel onto the already red paper to achieve a rich saturation of color. By contrast the female figure is suggested by blue, gold and black pastel lines. It takes many years of drawing the figure to bring a painting to such refined minimal state – an essence.

It is on acid fee canson paper. Currently Shades of Red is unframed. The Gallery Director, Patricia Purdy has decades of experience in framing and design and can help you match this work to your home decor. Please contact us at River Studios  for more information.
