Come see Amy Sanders and SaraJane Doberstein demonstrate their unique painting techniques as part of our day “Swooping in for Wild Care”. Amy will demonstrate building depth and luminosity with pastel as she works towards bringing a painting to life through multiple layers. Pastel is a unique medium, in that the pigment particles retain their individuality within layers. If carefully layered using strokes in a variety of colors, weights and direction, light bounces among the particles creating a unique radiance that is the hallmark of the medium.
Watching SaraJane, you will see the media and techniques she uses to achieve the unique perspective in her coastal work. She will begin with a raw umber tonal value underpainting. She will paint from there using the layering techniques scumbling and glazing, with some areas painted alla prima, wet in wet. Each artist will share knowledge based on decades of experience.
Audience questions and comments will be encouraged and add to the afternoon.
