Descending Tree Line, pastel on sanded paper, 9 x 18
I just conducted a Making it Fine Art Workshop for the Pikes Peak Pastel Society last weekend. We had a very successful weekend with a number of breakthroughs, new experiences, great starts and a number of very good artworks works emerged.
More workshops are scheduled for October 2016 - 2017 in the Denver Metro and MA in 2017. Complete info
Descending Tree Lines is one of the pastel demonstrations I did at the workshop. It is on the theme of taking a common subject and progressing it through a number of different looks but still ending with something that is fresh and interesting.
Many thanks to the person that purchased this pastel their collection that day.
At the Workshop
Here we are on the first day of the workshop. We had a lot of work going on with new ideas and breakthroughs.
Thank you Bonnie, for the recommendation:"Thanks for the wonderful workshop! You are a fountain of information and are so giving of your time and knowledge. We all had fun and enjoyed your sense of humor. It's so refreshing to let go of rules and loosen up with color."
