Miriam’s Art is pleased to release her Wave pastel painting. It was painted at a time when I was battling my inner demons but turned out well I think. Enjoy!
The blue green of the lower part of the wave contrasts well with the blue and white of the upper part of the wave. The blue sky above contrasts well with the darkness of the top of the wave. Movement is indicated by the blue and black contrast.
I was battling my inner demons and at first thought that this was too dark, reflecting my mood. But I made it darker yet in some parts and blue on the top of the wave. I am more aware of what happened to me as a child and that makes it forefront in my mind. I now think of it often. Hence the inner demons. When will I heal completely is the question. Will I ever heal completely?
I tried to make the wave seem glassy using black contrasting on white in the prominent part of the wave. It worked to a certain degree so the contrast between the white and the black is needed. Unfortunately it is difficult to get that glossy white with pastels.
I had planned to do some reading and continuing on my healing journey today. Technical difficulties with my computer made my afternoon a wash…I spent most of the time talking with a computer IT guy!
This is a 12 x 18″ original pastel painting and can be found on my website www.miriamsart.com under Shop then Portfolio and then scroll down to Go To Shop. Enjoy!
