I was fortunate enough to take a Portraiture Workshop with Judy Carducci last week. Judy is a master Pastellist and one of the best portrait painters around these days as well as being a knowledgeable and patient teacher. We painted from life each day and I ended up with two pretty good paintings and one really good one. One painting was a total flop because I was experimenting with a new surface for the pastel and it just did not work for me. These were all painted in three hour sessions in the afternoon.
