Pastel Plumerias by Nancy Goldman

I'm going to be taking a 2 day pastel workshop this week so here is my 'before' pastel and we'll see what my next one looks like after the class.  This one is done on a mat board that had some texture on it.  I usually prefer to work on a sanded surface that is smooth but I do like the texture on this.  I don't know if you can see it in this photo but it's there.

  1. Nancy, this is beautiful. I love that dark background! I hope you have a great time at the pastel workshop!

  2. I love the dimensionality and patterns of the flowers in this, and look forward to seeing what you accomplished during the workshop. Don't you just love workshops!

  3. Thanks Sherry and Robin. I hope I learn how to mix colors better and get subtle results. That is really hard for me in pastels. I do so love workshops!

  4. Love the shading you did with the petals and the dark background makes the flowers just pop. I keep looking around for workshops to do, all have been too expensive for me right now. But I hope to develop the love for them also!

  5. These curvy beauties make a gorgeous painting, Nancy.

  6. Nancie, keep looking for workshops. Some of them are very reasonable and it's always good to learn from other artists.

    Thanks Linny.
