Night Sea (Robin Hood's Bay)

Night Sea (Robin Hood's Bay)

I do like the overall effect Dawn, an atmospheric piece.

I really like this Dawn, well done, great blending in your new pastels.

Thanks, Carole. I may have to shell out on a few more now!

Expensive business this art isn't it Dawn? But I love trying new stuff and new colours 😊

I hope you enjoy using the pastels as much as I am Dawn, I bought a cheap set to start with in case I didn't like them but now I have more confidence with them I won't be afraid to buy more expensive in the future, well done with your painting by the way.

Thanks Margaret and Linda. Yes, Carole - its expensive, but makes me easy to buy pressies for!

Hang on Studio Wall

I bought 5 panpastels very cheaply on Ebay to try out, added a couple of pastel sticks to the mix and this is the result. Paper is pastellfix, which is also new to me. This is another painting inspired by the noon rises and sunsets we saw on our holidays at Robin Hood's Bay.

About the Artist
Dawn Halliwell

I started painting in Jan 2016 after the death of my youngest sister. I found it great therapy and still do! I love experimenting with different techniques and media. I mainly work in pastel or oils for pet portraits, but I also enjoy doing ink portraits with the odd landscape thrown in for good…
