Becky Neideffer will be sharing an easy way to graph from a reference photo to achieve accurate perspective. Please bring a ruler (12"), graphite drawing pencil, bright colored pencil or pen (preferably red) and eraser. This will be a hands-on fun program.
Textured Surfaces for Pastel
Julie Patterson is a painter working in both pastel and oil, striving to capture those moments that have tripped some artistic trigger in her. As a native Texan and an Arizona resident for 30 years, her sensibilities are grounded in the American Southwest, and her subject matter is often the arid magic of the desert, its animals and landscapes.
Texture is a key element in painting to her. This demo will explore the possibilities of underpainting and the use of heavy texture and soft pastels on board, especially for whimsical and animal paintings. Julie will bring examples of her work with texture and a handout with various recipes for texture.
Thank you, Julia, for a great demo. Please download Julia's handout to save or print.
