FRANÇOIS BEAUDRY — PASTEL and WATERCOLOR PAINTINGS


In several paintings presented below, pastel and watercolor are fused in a mixed technique carried out on an abrasive support, either a sandpaper (sp) or a carborundum panel (cp). This surface holds the pastel well, each stroke stands out, good for several layers and, ultimate quality, require no fixative.

 I was awarded the title of "Master Pastellist" by the "Pastel Society of America" following three prizes won, with portraits, during my participation (1984-1987) in their annual group exhibition held at the "National Art Club” in New York.
