Pastel Apples Demo

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!

Beach Demo

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.
