Landscapes. Pastel on paper.

As this post goes on you will begin to understand that R has a thing for landscapes and portraits - and that the living room is very much R's room when it comes to hanging pictures. These two we found together and they are clearly by the same artist. They have that thing which some pastel drawings have of appearing very rough and ready close up but resolving to almost photographic clarity as you step back. These mounts were my first attempt at the, now slightly old-fashion techniques of mount decoration involving watercolour lines, washes and gold bands.
