Sydney in Central Park
This is the progression of my painting; Sydney in Central Park. (Yes she is adorable and one of five of our beautiful grandchildren). After a rough sketch, I laid in complementary colors to give depth to the final painting. I then washed them leaving drips here and there. Then I began layering the pastel to get my final work. The nice thing about the wash is that when you scrub off the layered pastel, the washed in complimentary colors are set and allow you to let them shine through or reapply over them.
Easing my way back to pastel with Landscape.

Judith Carducci Workshop
The Art Studio
|Judith Carducci...I've never seen anyone love the process of creating like Judy does.|
She is a delightful person.
|1st workshop in 8 years. Trying not to shake!|
|Judy spent her lunch breaks with us answering personal questions and telling some great stories. |
Thank you Judy.
These paintings were both done in 2005. On my journey I hope to restore some of my previous skill, though it seems my style may be a bit looser this time around. I also hope to gain confidence and ability from years of painting from life and plein air.
