Looking West

My husband has been asking me to do a portrait of him, so here it is. He dressed up in his cowboy gear, and I created his portrait on medium grey pastel paper using both soft and hard pastels alongwith pastel pencils. Since my normal subjects are animals and nature, it was a challenge to do, but fun!

About Barbara A. Lewis

Commercial Artist/Fine Artist - I am currently working in pastels, oils, acrylics, colored pencil, graphite and scratchboard. My favorite subjects to paint are Florida wildlife such as egrets, herons, and particularly the birds of prey such as owls, eagles and hawks. I also enjoy nature photography with my husband and exploring the remaining natural areas of Florida. I hope to encourage conservation of our natural resources through my art and photography.
