Artisan Expo, Thursday, Sept. 29. 9 am-4pm.

Everyone seems to be obsessed with Light — which is not a bad thing! But light, by itself does not make a great painting. There is so much to the quality of light, including shadows which add life to a painting. We will explore, first with a demonstration painting, then a teaching/painting session; how quality of light, shadow, value relationships and the preservation of highlights and deep shadows work to make a luminous pastel painting. Materials Included. $160 = Tax Start planning now!
