Hi, here are some redrawn pastels. Few weeks ago I washed some old pastels that started to loose color, the fixative was very bad. Than I redrawn some of them after the photos that I took while they were still fresh - couple of years ago. The old ones are on my blog, if you wanna have a look, Patel Sketches - Firiza Maramures: http://biancascrisori.blogspot.com/
I think pastel is a handy technique for working outside in the sun. You don't need a lot of things like water, mediums, brushes... I kinda like it.

I painted it after I visited her when she was working at Birka as a guide(a Swedish viking town).
Thats why the viking theme ;) I was inspired by Klimt when i painted it.
I started this picture as a simple one with just the guy with the axe, but little by little i started to add more stuff and it ended up like this. My main focus was the light. I am obsessed with it, i could say that now it is my main goal to learn how to put it properly.
