I have used soft pastels on 300g watercolor paper.
I have taped the paper onto a board, so I can tilt it and get these nice clean edges
Layering the colors using the qualities of the pastels to get both opacity and translucency
I finish off with several layers of fixative to keep it from smudging
I work intuitively taking the different qualities of the colors into consideration.

About The Artwork

This is the third picture in my recent Habitat series. People live in a variety of different environments, this series is inspired from a history I recently read about tree dwellers. Imagine to live high above the ground surrounded by plants and greenery. This multicolored picture expresses my natural habitat. Red is the main color and is accentuated by violet and orange, smaller green spots make the red show off. Handle with care. This artwork is made with soft pastels on paper and will need framing, don't touch the surface. It ship safely flat in a box.

" I WEAVE COLOURS INTO COLOUR POETRY AND MEMORIES TO LYRICAL LANDSCAPES" "My lifelong passion with colour unfolds itself in my artwork. For as long back as I remember I have colour memories, images like this one of my grandma standing white-haired in her summer garden between pink roses and greenery with her light blue apron gently waving in the breeze. I perceive much of my surroundings through colour and experience nature often as an abstract imagery. Beautiful colours, vibrant or soothing, surprising and fun, all of them wherever they appear continue to fascinate and inspire me to create colourful artworks. I work intuitively and from memories, preferring to create a series of paintings from the same inception.  I live and work on the West coast of Norway with the North Sea at one side and Fjords on the other. I want to convey my perception of these old landscapes to the viewer, to visualise the abundant beauty and vulnerability of this nature through the veil of memories and the vibrancy of the colours. I like to capture moody moments and express its calm and serene greatness. These lyrical landscapes are not pictures of actual places, they are made from memories and one could call them soulmoods, as they express emotions and a state of mind as much as a landscape" Kristin Holm Dybvig is a Norwegian artist, educated in England, she live and work at the West Coast of Norway. Art work in different forms and mediums has impacted her life from early on and after a year at the Faroe Islands collecting experiences and memories trying out own art and teaching art, she moved back to Norway working as an Art Director in a Advertising Agency. Kristin received her diploma from Tobias School of Art and Art therapy in 1997. After graduating she moved back to Norway to work as a art therapist for children and young adult , she stayed in this job until she decided to pursue her career as s painter three years ago.

She happily connects with the world from her small garden studio, where you will find her creating art with her favourite handmade soft pastels staying close to her inspiring landscapes.
