I always listen to music when I paint and lyrics inspire me very much. This painting is a tribute to the song "Heart of gold" by Neil Young. I use pigments and dry pastels on canvas and finish with satin varnish.

Kerstin Paillard

Juan les Pins, France

French artist Kerstin Paillard creates abstract compositions on canvas using dry pastels, comparable to highly pigmented chalks, a medium typically used on paper. “I put coat after coat of colored chalk on the canvas, moistening them and piling up one surface on another until these works take on something of the quality of miniature frescoes,” she says. Kerstin’s work is informed by an array of artists including Degas, who used pastels in a similar painterly manner. The pastel artworks in Kerstin’s body of work are akin to soft, ethereal color field paintings with a rich depth of blended color that is typically associated with oil paint. The artist works from a bright and sunny seaside studio in the South of France.
