Maryland Pastel Society Workshop


My workshop in Rockville, Maryland was great!  I taught three days and juried the awards for their Shades of Pastel show that I had previously juried for entries.  I was asked to do a portrait too on my last day so two demos that day and then a demo at the show as well.  Exhausting but great fun!


I was disappointed not to have the color paper I wanted for my portrait demo...had to go on darker and cooler background

Oil Demo 11/11

Did this 8 x 10 demo for my oil class yesterday.  The idea was to create the horses both with the positive shapes you put in and carving back to clarify the shapes

pastels on velour

 My pastel in the PSA Annual Juried Show received the Atlantic Paper award.  I chose to try their velour paper for pastels.  Here are two I've done..they are not out of focus...it is a soft look.
