"Monterey Cypress" Quick SketchDemo
This demo took about 20 minutes, including standing back regularly for a distance view, which is important. It was nicely edited down to 8.5 minutes which makes me sound quite a bit more articulate than I actually was.
From the Art League Blog ...
"With Winter term classes underway, our camera crew is once again making the
rounds of Art League classrooms to record instructor demos. Today we’re pleased
to add the first pastel demo to our library, courtesy of Nancy Freeman!
In the video, Nancy shows her Wednesday morning Exploring Pastel class how
to do a quick pastel sketch, working from a reference photo she took near
Monterey, California. It starts with showing the paper who’s boss."
If you have any trouble with the video, here's the link to the Art League site:
