The October Program:
Conveying Realism with Pastel with Carrie Robles
Carrie Robles gave us a very informative, interesting and fun presentation at the October 16 meeting. She first talked about the paintings that she brought. They were each done on a different surface giving each painting a different feel. Then she went through a slide show and shared lots of information. Among other things she highly recommended following the drawing course of Charles Bargue and Jean-Leon Gerome to learn how to draw. She also got the attention of everyone when she talked about how there is a whole rainbow prism of colors in every reflection of light, glinting off of water for instance. And how if you put all the prisms colors starting with white in the middle then working out to yellow, orange, …. To show a light reflection in a painting, it makes it come alive.
After the slide show she set up to paint using a reference photo of a rabbit with the sun shining through his ears and glinting off of his back. She provided a copy of the same photo to everyone present and TPS provided paper, pastels and gloves to paint the image along with her. Carrie continued to share little tips and tricks as she painted. Everyone there seems to enjoy her entire presentation as well as being able to play with pastels.
