A versatile painter, equally as adept in landscape as he is with village scenes and pastel portraits, Ned Mueller gets people, whether it’s a turbaned man from Rajasthan, India, or a local model at a weekly figure and portrait drawing session. For Mueller, it’s not about a pretty face, but character. He’s generous with color, confident in gesture and smart with detail. Learn more about Mueller in Aaron Schuerr’s profile of the artist, featured in the December issue of Pastel Journal, and enjoy this portrait gallery below.
