The mountains in the piece are based on the Alps, particularly Mt. Untersberg, outside Salzburg. My main goal when I started this piece was to use color and light to contrast the mountains with the rest of the image, so the mountains really stood out.

This piece is chalk pastel on heavyweight acid-free paper. It will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Anastasia

Anastasia Pimentel finds inspiration anywhere and everywhere. “I’ve often stopped in the middle of a run to snap a photo of an interesting plant or animal or (safely) stopped my car to take a picture of a cool building,” she explains. In each work, she strives to highlight the beauty she sees in the world. Pastel is her favorite medium because of its soft texture; she enjoys using her hands to form each composition. Whenever she’s not making art, you can find her reading or growing plants — she’s got a bit of a green thumb.
