Artist Statement
for Dawn McGuire
Dawn McGuireHello Beautiful People.. x

I feel truely honoured to be part of this Incredible Community.

I LOVE to enthuse and inspire people, and if I cannot enthuse you with my work then I will try with my words.

The constant flow of serious quailty work on this site is INCREDIBLE!!..

A Real Big THANKYOU to Everybody for their Amazing support and interest in my work and for sharing their work and veiws with me.... I cant get over the fact that I feel genuine affection for everyone yet have never met anyone? It is, it seems, as if you come to know people through their work its magical....

I am sorry I have not been on the site much of late but my life can be exceptionally demanding and I am prone to dark periods. Please don't take it...
I am loving pastels as a medium but I am frustrated that this portrait among other work has been spoiled by using fixative. Even the best stuff tends to darken...
Pastel artists only use fixative when doing light details over dark colours. Mask of the light colours before spraying the dark one. Dark colours wont change... view answer
