Some invented – some real. All pastel drawings are built with layers of color, protected from rubbing together with workable fixative between each layer. Then a final spray when complete. Same technique that Degas used, only now we have spray cans!
Note: All these pieces are currently available and looking for just the right homes. Please scroll down to find links to purchase. All are priced at $175 which also includes shipping! These smaller drawings on archival paper will be well protected and carefully packed flat, ready for you to frame as you wish. Thanks for having a look.
