This was my demonstration for pastels for Painting in the Parks at Stacy Park on Saturday, April 25. I had to do it quickly so I tried to capture shape and lights and the general placement of things. I finished the drawing in my studio (without returning to the scene) because I believe doing that gives more character to the piece.
These two paintings are by Camille Harmon. She paints quickly and almost always does two paintings to everyone else's one! I think the Live Oak tree is wonderfully loose and colorful! Both paintings are acrylic and smallish 12x 12" and 8 x 10".
These two paintings are done by Kharon Clark. The painting on the left is acrylic on canvas and is about 16 x20" and was painted in Bull Creek last week. The painting on the right is acryclic on canvas and is about 10 x 14" and was painted in Stacy Park this week.
This is one painting by Megan Conrad. The painting on the left was worked on a week ago, adding hot colors over cool, dark colors, then cool colors over the hot colors. The painting on the right was finished last night with the final lightest hot colors. It is acrylic on canvas approximately 24 x 18".
I painted these paintings as demonstrations for my Painting in the Parks class The painting on the left is from Bull Creek and the Painting on the right is from Pease Park. Both are acrylic - 16 x 20" Above are several student paintings from 04/18/09, painting in Bull Creek Park
