Pastel and Mixed Media Workshop July 12

Here are a couple of paintings I've done in preparation for my workshop on pastels and mixed media. The top one is watercolor and pastel and the bottom one has ink drawing and washes as an underpainting. I am having so much fun getting ready to share some new techniques at the workshop. Registration is first come first served and I have a couple of spots open. Email me if you are interested in joining us!

Mini Workshop July 12, 2009 'Painting Water Lilies'

'Water Play' 8x10 pastel
I will be offering a summer mini workshop at my Marietta, Georgia studio on Sunday July 12, 2009. We will meet from 1:00 pm until 5:00 pm. The cost of the workshop is $45 and will include the cost of some supplies we will be using. The subject of this workshop is 'Water Lilies: A Multi Media Approach to Pastels'. The workshop will coincide with the Monet Water Lily exhibit at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. Hopefully we will be inspired to try our own version of water lilies. In this workshop we will be letting go of our usual methods of working and trying new approaches to pastel. It should be fun and liberating! There will be demos and as I usually do, I will work in art concepts that will help us improve our paintings. Come prepared to get messy and play!
If you would like more information or would like to sign up for the workshop please send me an email.
