See a Live Video Demo of this Forest Pastel Painting!

 It's Sunday Studio Time!  We have been wanting to try doing a Facebook Live video of one of my daily painting sessions and we finally had the opportunity. My husband Michael was using Facebook Live to share our Disney World trip with our daughter who couldn't join us. We thought it would be fun to make a video of me painting. I am calling it 'Sunday Studio Time' and I hope to make a new video every Sunday (when I am home.)  The first video was live on Facebook on Sunday but you can still watch the video on my Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/karen.margulis

I take you through the process of choosing a subject and getting the plan in place for the painting and narrate the painting process through the finish. The finished painting is 'Summer in Finland' a 9x12 pastel on Uart 400 paper.

I began with a very quick thumbnail and then selected my pastel palette. I did a dry wash underpainting using 4 pink and red pastels rubbed into the paper with pipe insulation.

I invite you to visit my Facebook page and watch the video. You can still comment or ask questions and I will do my best to answer them as quickly as possible. I hope you enjoy spending some studio time with me!!

Will this be on You Tube? I really like your painting style. I follow you but do not have Facebook. I would love to see a video weekly. Thanks.

I really hope you will put this video on YouTube. I don't have Facebook because of privacy and security concerns. I learn so much from your video demos and blog. Love reading about your travel, too.
