Re: Intro - pastel newbie
Sorry I havenít responded before now...Iím on vacation and had out of state company for a visit. I had to drop the family member at seatac at 5am earlier in the week so, you know, if Iím up THAT early and ahead of traffic, might as well drive to Mt Vernon lol. I did a giant splurge on a set of 50 Mount Visions so have been having fun.
Richard, I probably wouldnít make my own, but you know...Iíve said I wouldnít try things (um...like pastels!) in the past and changed my mind later. I think if you are up for it one rainy afternoon or evening to write things out, it would be great info to know! Plus, Iím VERY curious about pigment info for pastels since I get a little geekier than average about watercolor pigments and and find it odd, really, that pastelists arenít much into that. Of course, the need to distinguish between transparent vs opaque, inert vs active, staining vs not, obviously doesnít have the same level of importance for pastels. if you post the instructions, maybe it would be good as a separate thread so people can search formit in the future?
Mike, Iím glad to know someone else following Karenís info. I wish I could do the same with Alainís class (too $$ at the moment). I hope to attend at least one pastel workshop in 2020. Dakota has released the names of the instructors for 2020 so Iíve been trying to visit websites and see whose style might be a good fit for me. Topics are to be announced.
