Sept. 12 Class Demo

Trees Aglow, pastel, 9 x 12
This past Monday I began teaching the first week of my fall session pastel class at Spruill Center for the Arts.  With several new pastel enthusiasts in the class, I wanted to start with a piece that would show how to simplify a basic landscape composition.  I chose an exercise similar to the one in my last post in which we begin the painting by simplifying the composition into 5 large shapes and then gradually break down the finer details from there.  Trees Aglow is my completed demo from the class.
