Shoeshine boy in the market
This image was created from a photograph taken in an Ecuadorian marketplace by a friend. I enjoyed the narrative and creating the folds of material using sharpened pastel pencils. One can imagine being there and absorbing the atmosphere!
It is completed using soft pastels and pastel pencils on Artspectrum colourfix paper. The sharpened pencils create the detail and the background is blended using polystyrene sticks to give the three dimensional effect to the completed painting.
This painting is 16 inch by 12inch - in it's frame it is 22 inch by 18 inch which is the perfect size for any wall.
