Christmas morning - donkeys in snow
ArtistIvan Jones Pastel Artist
DescriptionIt is a real compliment for an artist to win an award of any kind with their artworks, and winning Artist of the Month by the editors of the Artists & Illustrators magazine is even more so.
I am proud of these donkeys, created with pastel pencils, that have been used for Christmas cards both by Woodmansterne cards, and by me for friends and family.
It is definitely embarrassing to say I am an "award-winning artist" but I have been privileged to have been presented with a number of awards over the past year or two. I am sure many of my fellow artists have received a range of awards so why not use the same moniker?
You can see some of my award winning artworks in a video on my home page.....
These donkeys were created from a reference photo taken by me, during the winter of 2010, in a nearby village to my home in Wigmore.
Here I have used my usual combination of soft pastel and pastel pencils on Artspectrum Colourfix pastel paper.
