Pastel on paper

Sailing, or Sailboats in a Harbor, pastel on paper attached to a board, by artist Jonas Lie (1880-1940)

Titled Sailing, or Sailboats in a Harbor, this is a pastel on paper attached to a board by artist Jonas Lie, who lived from 1880 to 1940. I love using pastel. You can do a lot with the medium, as evidenced in this beautiful work by Mr. Lie. I encourage anyone to give pastels a try. I prefer the “wet” ones with oil rather than the dry.
