Pinky - original pastel painting by Rita Kirkman

"Pinky"  (pastel, 8x8 inches)   click here to bid

I've come back to pastel and my favorite surface, terra cotta pastel primer on board.

Pinky is not really a pink pig, but her ears sure are (and her toenails!) Shes a pretty stylish gal!


  1. I really like Pinky. What is Terra cotta pastel primer?

  2. Thanks Dottie! Thanks Nancy! It's Art Spectrum brand pastel primer, which is an acrylic based gesso with pumice, and comes in various colors, or clear. My favorite is the terra cotta color. I like the warmth it gives that harmonizes the entire painting almost no matter what colors I use!
