Layered Paper Pastel Technique

Layered paper pastel is my unique technique of drawing on 100% rag paper followed by multiple layers of drawing on translucent architectural vellum that has been soaked overnight in an acid free wheat starch.

Each layer of drawing contains parts of the overall image. The wet papers, the bleeding chalk colors combined with the cracks and wrinkles of the dried cotton paper direct where the details develop and how the image emerges.

My job is simply to begin the drawing and have the courage to let go of how I think the image should progress and follow where the wet chalk, wrinkles and cracks take me.

                                                                      “I do not create the art, when I let go, the art creates me“
