PSST members were treated to an instructional and entertaining demonstration by Carolina Dalmas at the February 2 meeting. Carolina explained her technique with texture, painting loose and using imagination in color, form and details.
Her work was projected onto the wall so we could easily follow her progress. Please click image to enlarge
PSST members started the New Year by trying out new papers to paint still life setups with fruit. All in fun, all completed in one hour. Click image to enlarge your view.
Jeri Salter presented the artist demonstration at the November 3 meeting of PSST. She may have let us in on all her secrets, from her plein air backing board set up (super neat) to her method of texturizing gatorforam. Although Jeri loves to paint en plein air, her setup allows her to paint within the car. This gives her the security of being safe and quickly mobile, as well as coverage from nature's wind and sun.
