A Pastel Demo for You

Evening Light (11×14) by Maggie Latham

If you’re in the mood for a little arts education, we recommend that you check out this fine pastel demonstration by a pastel artist we are quite pleased to know: Maggie Latham has posted a “Talk on Pastels” at WetCanvas!  In it, she discusses techniques, materials and her own personal approach to painting.  She also shares photos of her process from board prep to finished product.

You don’t need to be a member of WetCanvas! to visit the demo, but you do need to be a member to participate in the discussion. If you were on the fence about joining before, now might be a good time to come on over. Latham has invited you to jump in with questions, comments or input.

I also hasten to mention that you can download a free PDF of a guide Latham wrote for our sister publication, Watercolor Artist, on using technology in the studio to produce your own giclée prints. (That’s right–Latham also paints in watercolor.)
