Welcome to Marina's  gallery of soft pastel paintings.


This website presents the paintings I have created since I discovered the medium of soft pastels a few years ago.


My preferred style is realism. I find it fascinating to play with colours and to create a three-dimensional effect. Simplicity of composition is an important part of my paintings.

I invite you to take a tour of this site, which is organised in galleries, one for each theme, e.g. fruit, vegetables and animals. Click on a gallery on the left of any page to view a gallery. I hope you have as much pleasure looking at the paintings as I had in creating them.


Original Recent Work Paintings

Many of the original paintings shown in this gallery are available for purchase. Original pastel paintings are sold without frames or passepartouts in order to keep postage costs down.

I have done my best to ensure that the photographs of the paintings are as close as possible to the originals, but inevitably some variations occur in the photographic process and monitors display colours differently.
