Janet Parker
Pastels Portfolio

Just as interesting as an up-close study of a stem of freesia, composing a landscape in pastel is a much trickier business. What to crop out, what to leave in? How to suggest depth, distance?
Working in this soft, sensuous medium is my current fascination, and I hope to be adding many more pieces to this portfolio.
