India – Steven Paul Carlson

India – pastel 16” x 20”

This stunning face still captivates me; it was an absolutely wonderful portrait to paint. It is one of those rare pieces of my own art that actually hangs in my house. 😉

The textures here also intrigued me; the necklace, the embroidery on her clothing and then creating the sheer effect of the veil.

Like the Viking portrait this too is rendered with pastels. It’s an intricate layering technique using different pastels with a final detail finish of pastel pencil. This layering process gives the portrait an oil painting, oil glaze look.

There are no prints of this work only the original.
