Pastel: GALLERY: More of Kim Lordier's Pastels

16 Jul 2007


In the March 2007 issue of American Artist, we explored how Kim Lordier has succeeded by pushing herself to create better and more original paintings with pastel and by stopping herself from rendering photographic details. Here, we offer more of her pastel landscapes in this online exclusive gallery.

I loved the galleriy of Kim Lordier's paintings. I assume you have been doing the Gallery presentations for some time. If so, keep up the good work!! We all enjoy seeing another artist's work. I love your magazine and will appreciate it even more with your on-line presentations!

Please pass my compliments to Ms. Lordier! I've seen and admired her beautiful work in The Pastel Journal, too, but posting an on-line gallery really allows us to see the breadth of her skills and to gain a better sense of her own personal style. As a pastel artist myself, I am always inspired by work of this caliber, and would love to see more of it in American Artist!

Always a great pleasure to view the work of a true star in the medium. Ms Lordier shows not only an unerring aptitude for a beautiful composition, but also for delicate tonal values, somrthing that I struggle with. Thanks for letting us see them.
