Marie Cotter showing Pastels at Paynes – Sept 15- Nov 15

 

 

This  pastel collection in done primarily en plein air.  All paintings are recent work. Pastel is a very vibrant, forgiving medium.  It has a fluidity that I find gratifying and challenging.

My training began at the early age of 9.  I started in oils, worked in acrylic, learned to be a technical architectural draftsperson, using inks and watercolor and now I am enjoying pastels!
After exploring so many mediums,  I am comfortable creating art, transferring what I see and interpret  to my paintings.
