Original art works by 
Brigitte K. Shaw

 

 

Brigitte’s’   painting career began with several years as a pupil of the Tonal Realist school  which was an excellent grounding for a solid future in art.  After some years of working in oils and then experimenting with watercolours, I discovered the enjoyment of soft pastels.  While I occasionally still like to dabble in oils,  I have for now, chosen to express what I see  and to record how I interpret my vision, in pastel.

 

Many of my paintings begin outside – en Plein-air – and are finished in my studio.  This way I am in touch with my subject.  I am exposed to all the difficulties and challenges of being out in the open, as well as to the gentler moods of nature on kinder days. And when I am in my studio to complete my vision and my experience, my music and my art transport me into my own beautiful world.

About Dry Pastels

Pastel is the most permanent of all media when applied to an archival quality surface and properly framed.  The pigments used in pastel-making are the same as those used in the making of artists’ oil paints.  Pastels used by painters from the 16th Century still exist today in all their brilliance.  Degas, Cassat, Monet, Manet, Whistler are just a few of the Impressionists who favoured the luminosity of pastels.
