It was a great day to be inside painting! We woke up to a rainy day in Phoenix and I was glad it wasn't a plein air workshop! I was thrilled that 21 fantastic painters from the Arizona Pastel Painters Association came to paint! The theme for this two day workshop is 'How to Loosen Up and Add Spice to Your Paintings' . And everyone did an amazing job with many finishing two paintings!
I opened the workshop with some of my favorite 'Loose' tips and a demo using my simple approach to a pastel. After lunch we did alcohol wash underpaintings. The wildflower meadow in today's post was my afternoon demo.
One more day and I have a lot more planned! It is so much fun to share with such an enthusiastic and hardworking group of artists!
