Our May 14 program will be about traveling with pastels and will feature Anne Kiefaber and Laura Pollak.
Anne will be showing her homemade sketchbook, as well as the tools she brought which were very portable from which she has produced some pastels and a couple of oils. She will explain her process and how she goes from a quick sketch to a painting. Ann will have a couple paintings in process, which she will bring.
Laura will be presenting some info on how she travels with Pastels… from plein air in her backyard to Japan, French Polynesia, and Italy. What to pack to minimize weight and space and to how to get through security. She’ll share photos of her setup on locale as well as photos of where she has traveled. Included will be small paintings done on location as well as the larger studio versions. She’ll also bring the backpack with the actual set ups.
Luana, our President, will have some giveaways she picked up for our members at the Portrait Society conference from one of the manufacturers!
Hope to see you at the meeting at 10 AM at the North Carolina Botanical Gardens room 106, 100 Old Mason Farm Road, Chapel Hill!
