Study in Blue

Margaret Tough

My continuing fascination with art is in the magic of depicting the three dimensional world and its atmosphere on the two dimensional art surface. The human face and figure, and their surroundings, and their objects of use, have been my topics of choice.

My passion is always to make art from life. The figure and still life objects present fascinating shapes of light and shadow. What colour is that shadow?

Continually drawing and painting, along with exploring new approaches over the years, has sustained the excitement of art for me. Developing my skills in the areas of composition and colour harmony while working in the media of soft pastel and oil paint, has led me to take many exciting workshops. Looking forward to times of exploration and discovery is a very motivating thought.
