This website features the pastel portrait paintings by Austin artist, Tim Woolsey. They are done either from life, from photos or a combination of the two. These pieces use both hard and soft pastels as well as pastel pencils. They are painted on primed acid free pastel board. Recently I have started using a very high quality Chinese pastel paper with excellent results. All works come framed and are glazed with non-reflective museum glass. Works displayed here are for sale unless noted. If you would like to purchase one of these pieces or commission a portrait for you or a loved one please use the Contact page.
