Quang Ho

Jeanie Schlump attended a pastel demo in Denver
by Quang Ho. The pastel was developed
very loosely over a period of 2 hours
as Quang Ho explained his process.

Black & white photo above as seen on computer screen
was used by Quang Ho for his demonstration. 

Using the broad side of pastel sticks, Quang Ho developed large
passages of dark and light values on a medium ground.
Colors were assessed randomly but still keeping the values
consistent with the picture. At this stage, the brown page
is the complementary color which is showing
through the various greens.

Quang started with a box of Terry Ludwig landscape greens,
then added complementary reds, still relying on the value shapes
as his reference.
