Original Paintings | Oil Paintings, Mixed Media, & Pastels

My newest works fuse drawing and painting in several different ways.

Dorothy Fagan in studio

Large palette knives allow me to draw and paint simultaneously. Rich, thick, buttery paint glows, reflections in ponds, streams, marshes and creeks juxtaposed with detailed drawings, carved into heavily-textured color fields. This feast for eye and emotion is showcased by deep, gallery wrapped canvas painted with matte, lavender-charcoal shadow edges.

Charred willow twigs of charcoal drawn into thinly washed, alkyd and oil paints fuse painting and drawing, color fields and graphic details. Soft and responsive to my touch, the stick of willow charcoals is like pastel, a friend in hand expressing delicate details and bold energetic strokes. Finished mixed media paintings are sealed with matte varnish and displayed without glass, in a contemporary, gallery wrapped style.

Twenty-five years of pure pastel painting formulates my foundation as a painter. Hand-rolled, uncompressed, cigar-like sticks from
France, England, Germany, and New York, rubbed against gritty, sanded papers set my standard of expectations. No fixative is needed. Raw pigment, emotion, impulse, release energy and pray. This process still functions as primary language.
