Flamenco Recital – Original Pastel


Flamenco Recital is a combination of a beautiful flamenco dancer and musician fine art original pastel, produced in cooperation with Ahmad Kavousian and Jens Viggo Fjord and created on a 50cm x 70cm pastel card.

The chiaroscuro technique, minimalist background and high contrast lighting adds to the atmosphere without distracting from the subjects. There’s a very high level of fine detail in this carefully composed, contemporary but photo-realistic pastel. Both the flamenco dancer and the guitarist are so passionate in their performance. It’s full of passion, drama and emotion.

The high resolution close up section is taken from my original scan file, so it’s extremely detailed and shows the exceptional quality of the original artwork.

I create all original pastels in a limited monochrome colour palette, in a contemporary realism style, adding only highlights which transition into the deep shadows.

My figurative compositions are influenced and inspired by the realism and romanticism of my favourite post renaissance classical Masters and their timeless, romantic masterpieces. William Bouguereau in particular. They predominantly entail high contrast, dramatic lighting and shading, as I simply adore light and am fascinated with its arguably undue influence on any subject. With the subjects, I aim to capture a carefully composed aloof anonymity in a moody atmosphere with the drama, passion and emotion in a frozen realism, rather than characteristic individual representation of a traditional portrait.

Each pastel is totally unique and painstakingly hand crafted by myself with extreme passion and fine detail in every aspect and they are sealed using a light fixative. An original pastel is the ultimate art form for discerning collectors when only the very best in fine art is acceptable and they require a statement piece to adorn their home for many years. Whether the same original artwork remains in the same place year round, or several pieces are alternated with the seasons, original fine art says something about the collector’s taste and personality.

Unframed: This original is supplied unframed for discerning collectors who have a preference to purchase their own bespoke frame to suit their personal taste that complements both the artwork and their home décor. It must be framed behind glass to protect the pastel.
Framed: As an option, this original can be supplied framed and mounted behind non-reflective glass and ready to hang in an extremely high quality, 2cm deep, 5cm wide, textured solid black wood, contemporary frame, for a sophisticated contemporary appearance. See the loose frame images in the product gallery for details.
