Original Paintings for sale by Michaeline McDonald

Most of my paintings were created using soft pastels. Soft pastels are NOT CHALK. They are pure ground pigment mixed with a little clay to make the pigment adhere to paper. Using pastels is much like fine sculpting on paper. Many layers are intricately painted. I also spray my pastel paintings with UV fixative which seals the pastels onto the paper and provides UV protection for the artwork. I also paint with acrylics on canvas and have been known to paint a mural or two :)
