Domingo Pastel Girl on the Beach
Domingo was born in Barcelona 1946. Having completed his studies in 1966, he spent several years illustrating numerous books and other publications and in 1971 he became sub-editor of an art magazine in Madrid.
Whilst living in Madrid, he explored the techniques of pastels and was very successful in selling his work to the galleries in and around the city, and later in southern France. During this time he began to develop an authoritative style and composition in the use of pastels, using a toned paper as an integral part of the background to his subject. His work quickly became recognised as being of exceptional quality. He was continually successful at selling his work and in 1975 he resigned from the magazine and became a fully professional artist.
Domingo’s work is now collected and appears alongside many other contemporary artists, who are distinguished painters in their own right. In the past five years, his work has appreciated considerably and he is now able to name his own price.
After his run-away success with the originals he authorised the release of 6 Limited Edition Prints in February 1999. These were also successful.
