Happy to oblige

When artist friends gather for a weekend, they talk about art, share techniques and tips, scout for plein air scenes to paint and sometimes put you on the spot to do a demo... Here is mine of lemons painted on UArt paper, the first one done with a watercolor underpainting, the second one with pastel and rubbing alcohol. It was great fun and I was happy to oblige.

Pastel workshop and PSNH show

We had another fun and creative pastel workshop at the Center on the Common in Harvard, MA this last Saturday. Students experimented with different under painting methods to explore what they liked best. Painting on Colourfix black paper seemed most popular but everyone produced great results with their watercolor and alcohol under paintings as well. Above is a sample of their great work.

Look for details about the next pastel workshop at the Center on the Common in Harvard on June 28th, 2014.

The Pastel Society of New Hampshire is hosting its 9th Annual Members Exhibition at the Mill Brook Gallery and Sculpture Garden in Concord, NH. The opening reception is on Sunday, April 27th from 2 to 4:00pm. My two paintings "Luminosity" and "Evening Light" will be part of the show. Hope to see many of you there.
