I am pursuing a second career/hobby in art. I am concentrating on photography and painting with pastels. Currently, I exhibit at the New Braunfels Gallery and occasionally at various venues with the Texas Pastel Society.
Here are three class pictures I recently completed.
Glacier Lake, The Ring of Kerry, Ireland
Could never get the distant island to "sit down". It floats. In the next picture, I used Turpenoid and pastel as an underpainting. I have used alcohol in the past but saw Maggie Price using Turpenoid in a recent webcast. It took longer to dry, but I did get the dark background I wanted.
Glendalough Stream #2
Finally, a 45 minute painting of a New Mexico scene. Rapid painting resulted in a "looser" picture.
Entered 3 pastels for the NBAL juried show hung in the Christus Santa Rosa Hospital cafeteria. All three were accepted. Show will be up for 3 months. Entered Glendalough Stream (see 3/22 post), Drying Onions (see 3/13 post) and Snail Mail.
