March 14 – Addren Doss presentation / demo @ Blue Ridge Atrium (NC Museum of Art)
CANCELLED – WILL BE RESCHEDULED
To me, aspen trees are beautiful no matter what the season. I love how the silvery bark reflects the light and the interesting textures and colors found on them. Let me take you for a walk in one of the many aspen groves I discovered this past summer in Wyoming. I’ll start with a monochromatic under painting in three values and build on top of that. I’ll show you how I work from a number of references including plein air pieces, photos, thumbnails, and small color studies to create the larger studio piece.
We had a very successful online meeting which included a display of member’s artwork that has been done during this time at home. We had 43 members attend and much information was shared.
You may view the the agenda with live links to the documents shared during the meeting here. Please note: You will need to login with your PSNC account to view.
July 11 – Lana Ballot demo on Oceans & Seascapes
