More Color


The series goes on. Limiting the palette on these little images seems to work. I am using maybe 6 colors of pastel. Keeps things interesting to work thru the process.
Interested in submitting images to a juried competition?
The NWPS member show submission deadline is coming up this month as well as Allied Arts of Richland for those of you interested in submitting images for the juror. The website of the NWPS lists possible competitions and links to competitions. So does PastelNews.com I believe. Lots of opportunities out there for shows.
I am posting this way late at night; I am tired and am heading off to bed. But as I continue on with the series…my words of wisdom…happy painting!

About bonnie griffith

I am a landscape artist who works in pastels, oils and acrylics. My work focuses on representational studies of the western US. I am basically self taught with lots of workshops and studies with several landscape artists such as Bruce Haughey and Clark Elster. I live in southwestern Idaho, am a native Montanan with a strong connection to the land. I spend as much time as I can in MT painting as well other parts of the northwest. I appreciate getting out in the field and working plein air because there is nothing like completing a painting in the true light of day and visually not being compromised by the use of a photo. In my work, my goal is to produce a piece of work that draws the viewer into the painting and challenges them to explore the scene; get a sense of the time of day, the temperature, the light or lack of. If I have gotten that viewer to step out of their reality and into that painting and enjoy it, then my work was accomplished as I wished. View all posts by bonnie griffith
