September

I made this drawing just after moving into a new studio in the first lockdown; for a number of reasons I had found it quite hard to settle in.

I instinctively felt that working on this large drawing would help me bed into my new space and happily it did.

The man in this portrait occasionally appears in my work, always silhouetted against the sky, I like how he looks directly out to the viewer, not confrontational but with strength & confidence.

The Pastel Society Catalogue Award: Second Prize

Janine Shute

Pink Tape Measure

The winning work will feature in the exhibition catalogue.

My work is a combination of colour, form, light and scale. I prefer the simplicity of a single subject in each drawing and use these four principles to create a striking drawing of an object usually overlooked but always familiar.

I keep the background free of pastel so the subject looks like it’s sitting on the paper and then float mount them so the paper itself becomes part of the artwork as a 3-dimensional piece.

There is a connection to the paper when using pastel, pencils and charcoal that I have never felt with other mediums and I continue to discover new techniques and influences that strengthen and enhance my work.

The Pastel Society Annual Exhibition is a great chance to see what other dry media artists are doing and I’m pleased to be recognised as runner up for the Catalogue Award.
