Mark Making

"Just for Jelly" crop

Been teaching a 7-week pastel series at Oregon Society of Artists and it sure has been a LOT of fun! I'm mid-way through the second series of classes and have one more that begins in late January. This one demo, above, was on mark-making to demonstrate that all sorts of marks can be employed to get interesting broken color as well as providing emotion like no paint brush could. I used a dizzy-like swirly mark on Wallis Belgian Mist sanded paper with Ludwig pastels.

"Swirly Jars" 12x9" sold

The last class on pastels begins Jan 27 and runs through March 10, 2015.  Classes held at Oregon Society of Artists on Tuesdays at 9:00am - 12:00.  Only room for 9 students. Interested?  Get your answers HERE.
