PASTELS: WARMING UP THE BLACK
|Painterly Pastel revisited.|
|This is the original rendition|
In a workshop or class, the object is not to make a masterpiece. The object is to learn what you can and cannot do with the medium--what you want from the medium. No student should walk out of the experience thumping their chest with pride. Being in a learning place, the object is to listen, learn and then push it to find what pleases you. A smooth surface doesn't please me. I like the unevenness of color a swipe of the pastel produces.
