portvoller's Profile Picture
Margaret Ferguson
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United Kingdom
Self-taught artist with a lifelong interest. I attended regular classes in Glasgow School of Art as a child.
I have completed modules with 'Open College of the Arts' and attended workshops and courses, including study under Ken Paine, master pastellist.
I have been selected as a featured artist on the 'Artists and Illustrators' website. The 'Portfolio Plus' category was 'Faces' and I was delighted to be chosen.

Your pastel work is so fantastic - just love it. Esp. the older faces have so much character!

Thank you, I'm very much drawn to faces with character and life experience, but still with lively eyes. Some of the later ones are in oils
Thanks again

Spent many hours in the national Galleries in Edinburgh this summer. Was unmoved and unimpressed by a great many of the formal paintings (90%) on show since they were specific to their time and in a sense, meaningless to anyone other than a historian or technically minded art student, awe of status is not one of my failings. I then happen upon your work on the internet, self taught versus academician, you win hands down. :D (Big Grin)
