MIDWEST PASTEL SOCIETY ZOOM DEMO

I had a nice time doing this demo for the Midwest Pastel Society.  I thought it was supposed to be a 3 hour demo...yikes...so I put together a complicated still life.  Turned out to be a 1.5 hour time slot which was perfect timing for me.

PORTRAIT DEMO MONDAY

I like to do different images when demonstrating either oils or pastels.  It is because the process is the same regardless of what I paint.  It always goes from general, color fields and values to details...even in a portrait.

Some New Work February, 2024

 I have a few new pieces.  The little oil is from my Monday class, the small pastel with people from a zoom workshop with the Adirondack Pastel Society.  The 16 x 20 is my latest pastel from my studio.

MONDAY OIL DEMO 1/15/24

 Did this 8 x 10 oil demo for class.  It is always about simplifying the complicated and thinking of shapes, color and value before details.
