These Venetian Ladies pastel paintings were inspired by the paintings of Italian renaissance artist Domenico Ghirlandaio. They were exhibited at the Art Fusions Exhibition at the Carmel College Art Exhibition. To create the look of the old Italian frescos, I used French Conte hard pastels, and used Sennelier metallic oil pastels for the gold halos and braid on the tunics.
