Studying with a master: Kitty Wallis, Day One
Here I am, ready to begin day 2 of a three day workshop with Master Pastel Artist Kitty Wallis. My weariness about painting the landscape falls away when I watch her paint her demo. First, she boldly creates a water-based under painting that looks like a big mess. Of course, it's exactly what she needs as a structure for the rest of the painting. Then, she adds pastel. And ...
It begins to jump off the page.
I'd like a super-sized order of zing and pop. Can I have some ketchup with that?
My first painting looks really interesting from 20 feet. Keep your distance!
