Larry, 12x9" pastel from life, Diane Mannion
Venice Art Center Portrait Studio
So glad I went to the Venice portrait studio yesterday! Happy to see a few artist buddies that haven't gone North for the summer.
Used Canson Mi Teintes, blue paper smooth side. Sketched placement, roughed in color masses, then washed with alcohol and soft nylon brush. The paper held up quite well, stretched flat because of the tape on four sides. Finished with Nupastels, Giraults, and Rembrants. Susan let me test out a Terry Ludwig for my first time. Will add to my shopping list.
