|'A September to Remember' 8x10 pastel ©Karen Margulis|
The Autumn Marsh inspires me. Visiting the Edwin Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in September was one of the highlights of my recent trip to NJ. It inspired the painting that I used for my latest digital download. I am pleased to share my latest detailed demo in PDF format now available in my Etsy shop.
This demo has it all....Autumn marsh grasses, blue sky with clouds, wildflowers, water. I use 35 photos to illustrate my approach from an alcohol wash value block in to the finishing touches. I include a larger reference photo and floe up photos of my pastel palette if you'd like to follow along.

If you haven't had a chance to try one of my digital download demos I invite you to have a look at them in my Etsy shop. They can be viewed on your computer or printed out and stapled into a booklet. I am excited to have found a way to share a more detailed demo with you. I have shared mini demos here on the blog but these PDF booklets give me room to share more photos and more detailed step by step narratives.
I offer a the following demos: Painting animals, Using a turpenoid wash underpainting, A landscape with Green. See them all in my etsy shop here.
