A common mistake made by amateur painters is
mixing black and white to make grey.
I painted this as an example when I taught
Beginning Painting just to show how
COLORFUL greys can be.
This has an under painting wash of colors
topped by dry-brush applications of texture.

|Pregnant cows were called down from upper acreage|
to their wintering area. I was so surprised
that these ladies came down when hearing only
the rancher's voice.

Pastel, 9" x 12" on Canson paper
Artist: Jeanie Schlump
Although this isn't a successful rendering of the model,
it is important to practice studies like
this as often as possible. Not every creation

|Jeanie Schlump and Joanne Ramsey attended the video |
workshop by Alain Picard. He demonstrated how to set up
a display, light the still life, look for a strong composition,
and work using color masses both within and
outside the objects.
This is the drawing created by Jeanie Schlump
from the workshop.
Next month we will have a video on portraits.

Mike Beeman demonstrated his method of developing the still life
by working with the mass of items rather than outlines
to develop the objects.
Objects are rendered both internally with value and color steps as well
as externally to carve the shapes from the outside in
and to allow the figures and ground to merge together.
People in attendance came as far as Louisville, Colorado,
Harmony, Cheyenne, Rock River & Laramie, WY.
Mike's skill as both an artist and teacher were greatly
appreciated by all. Thank you, Mike!

Mike Beeman is fast becoming one of the better known pastel artists in America. He is a gracious man who generously shares his knowledge of the medium during his demonstrations and workshops. Mike will be giving a workshop hosted by the Laramie Art Guild in Laramie, Wyoming on 2/21/2015. Interested parties may call 307-399-5763 for details.
|Mike Beeman demonstrates the painting of a chickadee |
on UArt using alcohol
as a medium for rendering the under-painting.
|The background & mass of the chickadee are loosely rendered.|
Outlines are virtually non-existent allowing corrections
of shape and color to be established both within and outside the figure.
|Specific details of the beak and eye are accentuated|
and a greater value range established.
|Mike paints with the pastel medium as he demonstrates |
the rendering of a chickadee and a common sparrow.
|Please note the transfer of colors both within & outside|
the figure. Middle values were established first
and lighter and darker values added afterwards.
The sharing of these hues prevents
the bird from feeling like a "cut-out"
pasted onto the background.
|The mere suggestion of feathers and legs allows for a more|
expressive rendering. Pure whites are avoided and either
warm or cool whites are selected. This image was worked on a felt grey
Canson paper, which allows the artists to render in both lighter and darker
values as he developed the form.
