Scintillating Showcase of Pastel Paintings by Gary Kelley
Painting is the practice of applying paint, pigment, color or other medium to a surface (support base). The application of the medium is commonly applied to the base with a brush but other objects can be used. Pastels are a unique painting medium in that the colors are mixed on the paper by overlaying or blending, rather than on a palette. Gary Kelley is a great artist from Cedar Falls, IA who specialises in Painting, Fine Arts and Illustration. Here is a stunning showcase of Pastel Paintings by Gary Kelley for your inspiration.
