Nosferatu - Count Orlok
The doomed Count Orlok (Nosferatu) emerges from the mists of horror films past to walk among us again! Count Orlok is the main antagonist of the 1922 classic silent horror film Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror.Orlok is one of the most iconic monsters of classic horror - He is also notable for being more faithful in many ways to the traditional representation of vampires in folklore, being a hideously demonic creature rather than an attractive gentleman. He was portrayed by the late Max Schreck in the original film, and by Doug Jones in the 2017 remake.
This is my original pastel artwork created for day 14 of Monstober. Art Spectrum soft pastels and Faber Castell Pitt Pastels on 8.27 × 11.69" Daler Rowney Murano Pastel sheet.
---------------YOUR ORIGINAL ARTWORK.Your new pastel artwork is a hand-painted work of fine art. I use the best archival materials for its creation. If properly taken care of, your painting will last for many lifetimes.
WHAT ARE PASTELS? Pastel is one of the most permanent art mediums in existence. Many pastels painted over 200 years ago are still as bright and fresh as the day they were created. They are actually superior to oils in that they will not crack or darken over time and every bit as permanent. The pastels of Degas and Cassat were created back in the 1800's and still just as beautiful as the day they were completed.
CARING FOR YOUR PASTEL ARTWORK.Keep the work away from moisture. Do not store it in a moist humid place. Moisture can damage the work and encourage mold growth on some types of art. Don't hang an original work of art in a bathroom! I protect my original artworks with a sheet of glassine as a protective covering. Leave it in flat dry place until you are ready to frame it. Never place anything on top of your painting. This can damage a pastel by smearing or leaving an unwanted impression on the surface of the work.
FRAMING YOUR ARTWORK.Professional framing is ALWAYS recommended.Choose a framer who is experienced in working with fine art pastels. A framer who works mostly with posters and printed reproductions or oil paintings may not realize that pastels take special handling. Do not risk the welfare of your pastel in the hands of an inexperienced framer.Pastels are surprisingly durable so don't be afraid to purchase one. They will last every bit as long as an oil painting. If you have any other questions or concerns leave them in the comments for me and I will try to answer them asap.
