There will be a demonstration by John Held, a well known painter of gorgeous skies! John says that he has always particularly loved using pastels to create stunning and dramatic skies. "Painting skies gives me almost unlimited freedom to explore color and light," he states. "And pastels give me the spontaneity and vibrant colors which no other medium gives me."
In this demo, he will be working with Townsend pastel paper, and will demonstrate how to utilize the unique qualities that pastels have in doing such works.
John is currently represented by the Antreasian Gallery in Baltimore. His art is also on display through January in Kathleen Sibelius's office (President Obama's Secretary of Health and Human Services ). After twenty-five years in Seattle, during which he got to observe storms on a daily basis, he now lives in Tuscany Canterbury with his wife, their dog, and three cats.
