9"x12" Soft Pastel on Wallis paper

I first painted this image in the smaller size 5"x7". I decided to create a new painting of it using the Wallis paper as support for the pastels. I really like the texture of this sanded paper when I'm working on landscape paintings. I'm in the process of narrowing down the support I paint pastels on. I still like using the printmaking 100% cotton paper for figurative works. I'm finding a like the texture of sanded surfaces for still life and landscape.

"Team Work"

13"x19" Soft Pastel on 100% cotton paper

This is the second painting in the series "PASSIONS". I've started this group of works focused on firemen. The series is about capturing a glimpse of what those around me are passionate about. There will be still life paintings included with figurative works. The first in this series is called "The Volunteer" ( Posted March 13th, 2010). It is now available in Giclee print with image approximately same size as the original. I'll soon have this painting in print the same size. Contact me if interested in purchasing a print. ginlammert@yahoo.com
