Saturday 4-6 at Addison Art Gallery (1)
Amy Sanders will demonstrate building depth and luminosity with pastel as she works towards bringing a painting to life through multiple layers. Pastel 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. Questions and comments from audience member of all ages will be encouraged and add to the event. The soft pastel medium can trace its roots back to prehistoric cave paintings, and pastels are now enjoying a modern-day resurgence of popularity due to their intense colors, permanence and “immediate” handling.
