I plan to post current paintings on my blog site. I'm not much of a writer but I do love to paint. I do oils and pastels and I teach workshops. I plan to sometimes post demos and talk about how to create a painting as well.

This 9 x 12 pastel was my first day demo of my pastel class. I wanted to keep it uncomplicated, thinking apples are a piece of cake. But when I began, it was more difficult than I thought it would be. There is no such thing as an easy painting!
So, today I forgot the photo I was going to demo from so I borrowed a couple of photos from one of my students and it became a lesson in being totally about the painting and not the reference. What to use, what not, how to change the colors to work for your painting.
