Pastel Landscapes | A Lorenzo Chavez Gallery

 

Lorenzo Chavez, whose work you’ll find in the December 2011 issue of The Pastel Journal—on the cover, no less—delights in painting winter in pastel.

“Winter is one of my favorite subjects to paint,” he says. “I get an emotional jolt every time I see the blue-violet shadows on snow or a partially frozen stream, and I’m always grateful to feel the peace of natural things. From the beginning, the natural color, sounds and movement of nature have been and remain inspiring beyond words.”

View a sampling of Chavez’ masterful winter pastels below.
