Cassandra. by Jumprabbit Cassandra. by Jumprabbit
Pastel on Canson Mi-Tex pastel paper, 52cmX 72cm.

Unsure of the photo colour and levels due to my computer dying this morning, so edited on a different machine/monitor to usual.

Preliminary sketch can be found in my gallery.

This one was an effort. ugh.
but it’s done now… huzzar!

First place-39th Gympie Gold Rush Open Art award- any subject any medium

Judges comments
Choice of colour and composition creates a contemplative mood.
The work presents a high technical standard which does not overpower the subject matter.
The artwork allows the viewer to wonder.

Yeah I'm pretty happy with it, I still need to re-edit the photo, I think its coming across as slightly over saturated on most screens. Colours are actually pretty subtle.

It won me a decent prize then sold straight away, so I really can't complain :)

Thanks, the neck piece was possibly the hardest part...it was all pretty challenging, don't usually do those sorts of objects, so kinda a first attempt at a lot of it
