Apples and a Pitcher, pastel, 11x14
Today I enjoyed holding a private class with a woman who's been taking my weekly group class for a few months. As a Christmas gift, her sweet husband arranged to prepay for several private classes with me. Since she's new to pastel, this was a nice opportunity to work with her one-on-one as we did a paint-a-long type class working from a still life, focusing on how to better apply each stroke to the paper. This is my demo that I finished up after the class.
