The majority measure around 50x35cm (approx. 19"x13") which when framed is approximately 65x50cm (26"x20"). The majority of the originals of this size are priced at around £750, with some over £1000. Payment is acceptable by cheque in pounds sterling or by BACS.

Some of the originals are smaller and their prices start at £500. These measure around 55x45cm (approx. 22"x18") when framed. Click here to see which of the originals are smaller. Please see the prints page to view the current framing options for originals. The larger originals fit in the frames for large prints, and the smaller original in the frames for medium prints.

The originals are supplied framed for their protection. They cannot be shipped abroad framed, but I will consider selling the originals rolled to overseas customers who understand the careful handling and framing that is required for an original pastel.

The availability of the originals is indicated underneath each picture.

If you are interested in acquiring an original please e-mail for the price or for further information.

Pastels are made from pigment ground into a paste, then rolled into sticks with a small amount of binder. It is the most permanent in colour of all media, having no liquid binder that causes other media to darken, fade, yellow, crack or blister with time.

Pastels are a versatile dry painting medium that can be blended or applied with visible strokes with the texture of the paper showing through.

Pastels were used as far back as the Renaissance and first gained prominence in the eighteenth century, when they were used by Impressionists such as Edgar Degas and Mary Cassatt.
