WA


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.

Love your ballerina pieces Sharon!

beautiful "old" pastels...do you switch back and forth between pastels and paint? I do like them both also.

Pastels are amazing. Do you still have them? They are very good.
