A successful PAA Mixed media Workshop!

Apr 10, 2010News

On Saturday, April 10, 2010 PAA member Christine Waara conducted a four hour workshop on doing a watercolor under painting and layering pastel on top.  Just about 25 workshop participants attended the great workshop in Studio #458 in the Hungerford Building and there was much to learn. Christine did a fabulous demonstration of the technique while her husband, Pat, video taped the event.  If you would like to purchase a copy of the DVD please contact this website and note that that is what you are interested in.  Participants sketched out their landscape subjects onto white Kitty Wallis Museum grade sanded pastel paper and then proceeded to do a watercolor under painting in complementary colors.  Once the surface was dry, the application of pastel began.  Some of the watercolor under painting is allowed to peek through creating a glow to your pastel landscape.  Following are some photos from the event:
