Pastel Paintings

BILL SORTINO

After over 7 years of doing both commercial and art photography I decided that I needed to get back into painting, which I had not done in many years. As I got into it using drawings I had from various ideas I was exploring with photography, I began to feel the looseness of the medium and in particular the amount of artistic freedom that I was missing simply because of the process of photography. While the creative process was the same, the medium allowed for a greater degree of flexibility for me. Although I have lost some of this work, here is an example of what I was creating in the 80's.
