The most recent in the series. Now that I am closing in on 50 images, I am thinking I really will be able to get to 100! I have moments of doubting, sometimes!
Spent the weekend in Seattle; visited Daniel Smith Art Supply. It is truly a candy store for artists and staff is very willing to assist and share experiences with a variety of products. Great place.
The main focus of the Seattle trip was to go to the Northwest Pastel Society meeting and demo of Steve Hill's using Pan Pastels. I have always been happy with my membership in the NWPS with an informative and updated website, their use of digital images for their show entries, the great venues they have had for member's shows and when they host an International Show. So this year there was some lack of participants for new board members and I decided to take that step and say that I would commit to the first Vice President's job. And as of the meeting today, all seats are filled and it seems to be an energetic group to work with.
Steve Hill did a demo using Pan Pastels - mostly as his underpainting. He used a LaCarte paper (sanded) and they seemed to work well for him. I had not tried them on a sanded paper yet, so will do that. I can see a group of my Series of 100 being done with the Pans on Wallis and Art Spectrum paper! So give them a try...and happy painting...
