Summer Portraits and Petals | A Gallery of Pastel Paintings

Composition, color and value are key to the works of pastel artists Donna Biggee, Karen Margulis and Joel Spector. The following gallery of pastel paintings showcases a small sampling of their summertime florals and figures. Read about the artists’ processes and see more of their work—pastel botanicals in both overrun fields and tended gardens—in the June 2014 issue of Pastel Journal, available at www.northlightshop.com in print or digital format, and on newsstands May 13.
