The Long Room – Pastel by Victoria Taylor-Gore

“The Long Room” is a new pastel I just finished. I have been doing this widescreen format for about two years now, but with landscape and exterior themes, not interiors. I love widescreen movies, widescreen monitors, widescreen TVs…it’s the expansive feeling and wide range of movement that draws me in. This type of composition is a bit more challenging with interiors – I had to work with the design until I got it to balance out. I am moving away from complicating these rooms as I have done in previous interiors. I want these expansive rooms to have the simple geometry of my widescreen exteriors and landscapes.
