Watching a master pastelist paint a portrait; talking and laughing through lunch with friends; learning how to improve a painting.
How about if it is free? And in the company of fantastic pastel artists? And if Christine Swann is there?
That's what happens October 1st, beginning 9:00 a.m.
After a short business meeting, Christine and a PSST model take center stage for a demonstration of painting the portrait. Can't wait to sit back, relax, and learn her how-to's.
After the demo, (around 11:30), PSST treats us to a scrumptious Jason's Deli lunch. A bit of a casual, get to know your fellow pastel artists, kind of time.
And then a critique session of paintings of 10 volunteer PSSTers. You get another chance to learn as Christine points out the best qualities of a painting as well as the areas that can be built upon and improved. What an opportunity for all of us to see a painting as a juror or competition might see it.
