Man with Cap

Took Alicia Sotherland's one day workshop this week and was totally blown away with her pastel portrait technique.  She's a terrific teacher and subscribes to negative shapes in painting portraits.  I'm here to attest that the process works.  I have lots of practice ahead of me, and with her help, I produced this portrait from one of her photos.  Now my husband wants me to paint him!

Joann this is fantastic. Sounds like a great day.
I will see you Saturday and maybe get a minute to talk about plain air.
