Martin’s preferred medium for his pictures of dancers and of the human figure is pastel. He likes to draft them in charcoal and then, when he is happy with the composition, paint them using chalk pastels. Most of his pictures of dancers originated as sketches made while he sat in a corner of various dance studios in the London School of Contemporary Dance during rehearsals! Most of his pictures of the human form are painted from life. And his “fantasy” pictures are - just that!
