Pastel Demo

work in progressFine artist Leif Trygg will demonstrate his technique and style in creating pastel landscapes of local landmarks in Ashland during First Friday, and the entire month. Topics covered include the process of selecting subject matter, framing the natural image to reveal the most interesting perspective of the site, the world of color selection, rendering and drawing techniques using pastels, and how and why matting and framing can make or break a picture.

This picture is a work in progress that Leif will complete during the demonstrations. There are others in the queue that will follow in this on-going series of pastel portraits of Ashland.
