Pastel on paper by
CONCORA Singer Laura Evans

Ms. Evans works in pastel and oil, and has exhibited widely in the Northeast. Her work can currently be seen at Clapp and Tuttle, Woodbury, Connecticut. 

Pastel has been a fine art medium since the Renaissance. It was beloved by noteworthy artists Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt, Odilon Redon, and James McNeill Whistler. Soft pastels consist of high quality pigments mixed with very little binder, and retain their color and beauty indefinitely. Being made with such a high concentration of pigment, pastel paintings reflect light without darkening refraction, allowing for very saturated colors.
Yes, I want to join the fun at Twilight Tango! Reserve my tickets!
