General Meeeting - March 3

The First Coast Pastel Society held its second general meeting this morning in Green Cove Springs. We had eleven attendees who heard all about the upcoming events of the society. Among the exciting upcoming events are our first member show, to be held in September 2012 at the gallery of Jacksonville gallery owner Heather Sams, and a workshop with Michael Chesley Johnson in October 2013.

We have submitted our membership to IAPS and should have a listing on their website shortly, which will begin to put us on the map.

Our president Lyn Asselta presented an excellent demo on underpainting techniques. including notan, watercolor underpainting. complementary color underpainting, and using either warm or cool toned papers.

Any of these techniques can be used depending upon the desired effect and the wishes of the artist. But Lyn's demo gave us all many things to think about when planning an underpainting.

Our meetings are fun and we provide refreshments! So please think about joining us at our next meeting which will be in May, details to follow. In the meantime consider our next plein air get-together on Saturday, April 7, 8:30-1:30, at Washington Oaks State Park. We will have more information about that coming up too.
