10/8/11 pastels 9x12
How much fun can you have? These sketches were done at the Art Students League for the Pastel Society of Colorado. I had the good fortune of demo-ing the different kinds of grounds a pastel painting can be painted on. Five same sketches were done on different grounds, UArt, ArtSpectrum pastel ground on Masonite and Golden Acrylic Pastel ground on hardboard (MDF) and smooth cotton canvas from Raymar. The emphasis was on fun. When was the last time you got to just play with the materials. We learn so much faster when we play.
