Pastel Gallery Archives - Teddy Draper, Jr.

This gallery of pastel work represents selected works created over time. Many were created during Teddy's Exquiste Excursion Workshops which take place in around Canyon DeChelly. Although working with pastels can be challenging, Teddy Draper Jr. expresses the medium like no one else can. He depicts his life on the edge and within the magnificent Canyon DeChelly, his Navajo homeland in living color. He employs his own unique technique that has been constantly refined and improved upon for the past fiffy years.

He attributes his present style to a feeling for "unseen colors." The refinement process is "like aging a good wine, you find you've got more color, style, and feelings."
