Today we enjoyed a pastel demonstration by Maureen Drake.
She began by warming up with a 40 minute demo of her blending tecnique.
Then Maureen began work in earnest with a very complicated scene of trees, flowers, water and reflections.
At the end of the afternoon, with a not quite finished painting. Such a shame we ran out of time, Maureen worked like a demon!
Next week we shall be putting everything we have learned into practice. In the meantime, to whet your appetite, here are a few examples of my pastel work from quite a few years ago.
