01- First Snow
Size: 12.5″ x 19″
This painting was the first pastel I ever painted. I was attending my first weekend painting workshop with instructor Bev Nevers in Trippstadt, Germany. After a brief discussion about what I hoped to achieve at this workshop, Bev pulled out pastel paper and pastels from her arsenal of materials and placed them on the table in front of me. “Paint”, she said. While others worked on watercolors and acrylics, I began my relationship with pastels and never looked back. I love the medium.
