About "Portrait of a Young Woman"

This drawing is from a series of chalk pastel portraits. The model was a beautiful young woman with great soul in her eyes. Chalk pastel is one of my most favourite media, there is so much you can do with it, so many marks you can make: from soft creamy colours, delicate smudges to harsh strident strokes. What I wanted to achieve with these portraits was to suggest the whole without drawing everything. For example, the woman's shirt is outlined and is deliberately incomplete.

About Nadine

Nadine Lewis

I started doing art seriously when I was 12 years old and had the privilege of attending classes with the late Bill Ainslie.

The time I spent with Bill Ainslie and his teachers at what became the Johannesburg Art Foundation had a profound influence on my work and my outlook on art. Their teaching style promoted freedom of expression, self-exploration and innovation.

I have used several mediums; my absolute favourite is chalk pastel.

I treat each artwork like a love affair: sometimes we fight; sometimes we don't speak to one another and sometimes ... well what can I say?
