Still Life Paintings
After discovering I was severely allergic to oil paints and solvents, I turned to chalk pastel. Pastels are made of powdered pigments and a binder of either gum, clay, or resin--and most importantly for me, are I'm not allergic! Their history can be traced back to the Renaissance, originating in Northern Italy in the 16th century. Sometimes referred to as “dry painting,” this medium offers an incredible range of colors with the ability to blend hues in the same way as paint.
