Joanne Last Gallery | Abstract Pastel Landscapes

British artist Joanne Last was brought up in a creative environment. Her parents and sister are artists. Like the rest of the family, she has painted all her life, and she revels in the challenge of doing something new and breaking away from traditional methods and thinking. “As someone who’s happiest being inventive and breaking what others consider to be ‘the rules,’ I’m aware that I’m still learning how to get the most out of my pastels. I’m always trying to find different ways to use them,” she says.

 

Enjoy this gallery of remembered and abstracted pastel landscapes below, and read more about Joanne Last in the December issue of Pastel Journal—available now at northlightshop.com and on newsstands beginning November 10.
