Trish Emory, another one of our award winning members, demonstrated her superior skills in pastels. Trish started with showing us the large selection of paper types available for pastels noting her favorites to achieve different looks to the work. Then she opened her huge box of pastels explaining the different kinds available to artists. She completed a quick study to demonstrate her techniques while reviewing composition, lighting during various times of the day, and other useful basics that were very helpful for new and re-emerging artists. Excellent presentation!!
