I had an awesome weekend in Charlotte North Carolina. My demo and workshop for the Piedmont Pastel Society had been on the calendar for a year so I was excited to finally have the chance to share with them. The topic we chose was color....Cooking with Color....Moving Beyond Local Color. My goal was to share ways that I use to help my color choices be more interesting yet still harmonious.
I was hosted by the program chair, Deb Rasberry, a very talented artist and wonderful host. (thank you Deb!) The day of the workshop was beautiful. Its a good thing because we were locked out of the venue and almost had to set up outside! But the door was opened just in time and the program began as scheduled.
I did three demos for the group. Each one illustrated a different aspect of how I work with color. I'd like to share each of the demos with you this week. I'll start with my last painting!
