Pastel Journal Online Exclusive | Pastel Seascapes

For German artist Astrid Volquardsen, the impetus to paint is found in the familiarity of her surroundings by the North Sea. “When I’m up there and I smell the salt, feel the wind and look at all of these colors around me, my soul is at rest and I’m simply one with myself,” she says. “The minute I’m there, I have a deep desire to capture all of this within a painting.” Take a virtual vacation and enjoy this gallery of additional paintings.
