Pasteling in New York City

I'm jumping around again. Quite a while ago, I signed up for Richard McKinley's pastel & oil workshop through the Salmagundi Club in NYC so here I am. Unfortunately, its been cold and gray but we've been having fun. Here I am on Tuesday with my painting of Washington Square and NYU buildings in the background. Working in pastel on white Wallis paper. We painted in the square all day and what lively day it was. I've never met so many friendly people while out painting. Passers by were constantly coming up to us and asking questions. Today it rained so we painted inside from photos. It was helpful learning from Richard how to bring the photos to life on the canvas or paper. Tomorrow we go to Central Park and hoping its warmer and sunny.

Hope you have a great time and better weather. The pastel drawing looks beautiful! You'll have to share at the next meeting even though it's not cp.
