Hi Nelson, I've been doing art for over 20 years and yes, I have sold many of my art pieces mainly oil paintings, which is what I started out doing. I am self-taught for the most part. Doing pastels is relatively new for me and I haven't been doing them for even a year now but love this medium the most. So sticking with pastels from now on.
Nelson, I don't do whimsical drawings. I only do realism and have been doing it for many years now. Started out oil painting and since then have done colored pencil, graphite drawings, and now pastel. I love pastel the most.
Hi Nelson, you're so very kind to leave me such a wonderful comment on my Collie pastel. Thank you for that! I had a lot of fun drawing her. It seems if I love what I'm drawing, it just turns out better than others do, and I really loved drawing her. It didn't take as long as you might think, only about 4 hours. The pastels are so soft that it helps me to achieve that soft effect on the fur. She's smiling and happy which is what drew me to her to do her portrait in the first place. Thanks again my kind friend for your lovely words.
