I no longer post to my blog, but it contains several years worth of short articles I've written regarding various painting tips, thoughts, and inspiration for pastelists and oil painters. I began the blog in 2011 simply as a resource for students I taught at my studio at the time. I stopped posting in 2018, but even though I've grown in my artistic journey since then, much of what I've shared here is still relevant, and therefore I've kept it visible for anyone who cares to skim though it.

Fall is here.
Autumn Color in Sunlight, pastel, 11 x 14
Well, here in Georgia, fall colors and cooler weather aren't quite here yet, but I'm sure ready for it. When I was looking through photos in preparation for this week's classes, I gravitated toward my collection of autumn scenes. I came across a scene that I had photographed on a cloudy day, and then went back another day and photographed the same scene on a sunny day. This is my sunny day demo from today's class. Next week we'll tackle the cloudy day version and observe how different lighting conditions affect autumn colors.
