"Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things."
Edgar Degas ( Soft pastel artist 1834 - 1917 )
I am a big fan of soft pastel works by Edgar Degas and always take out time to browse through his works. It is very inspiring.
Having an "Art blog" is like maintaining a digital record of all one's works. Sometimes I browse through my own works which I created in the past. I do it so as to observe, analyse and do a little study of the design, composition, colours and techniques that I used to create a particular work.
I am posting below three of my favorite seascapes that I created using soft pastel medium. The top two were inspired by my visit to Langkawi island in Malaysia and the last one in the series has been inspired by the white sandy beaches of Florida.

Browsing through old works brings back some pleasant memories and it also motivates me to continue working with my art.
For most of my soft pastel paintings I use Canson Mi Teintes paper which is acid free and comes in many different shades. I have posted earlier about "The papers I use for my soft pastel paintings" and you can click on the link to read the same.
Thank you for browsing through my works.
