Pastel Portrait Class, Show at Newark Arts Alliance, and New Chinchilla-centric Painting

Pastel Portrait Class

Today I taught a pastel portrait class for beginners at Tulpehocken Exchange. It was the perfect activity for a rainy Saturday afternoon. It was an intimate group with creative folks including musicians and a sculptor. I taught them some basics using dry pastel and offered tips on facial proportions, color, the blending vs. texture balance, and various methods of achieving different styles. Pastels are a great way to get vivid, painterly affects. They’re a wonderful step into painting. (Or use on their own.) Check out the slideshow below to see photos from the class.

Chinchilla Floral 
Those who know me in person know that I have 2 ornery chinchillas that I love to pieces. I created this small watercolor painting of a chinchilla floral print. It’s now available on Society6 on phone cases pillows, travel mugs, stickers, and other projects. Personally, I think it’s perfect to show your chinchilla love with a snazzy phone case.
