May is coming - bring your pastels!

What: May general meeting
When: Saturday, May 2, 10 AM to noon
Where: Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach

Yes everyone, the posts about our WONDERFUL member juried show will be available shortly, but in the meantime it's almost MAY, and that means our next upcoming member general meeting is almost here as well. This is going to be a "hands on" meeting for everyone so you need to bring your pastels with you.

Please bring a backing board, a simple reference photo, a sheet of your favorite paper, approx. 8 x 10, and 3-4 values of two different complementary colors, preferably hard pastels, but not your softest pastels. (for example: 3 sticks of violet-light, medium and dark and 3 sticks of yellow, light, medium and dark.) Please bring something other than Terry Ludwig pastels.

Why the Terry Ludwig restriction? Lyn has this to say:

I've had a couple people ask why they shouldn't bring Terry Ludwigs....
I personally LOVE Terry Ludwigs, but for this particular exercise, I don't want you filling up the tooth of your paper too quickly.   Hence the request for harder pastels of any kind (NuPastel, Faber Castell, Caran d'Ache, Rembrandt, possibly even some Unison or Mt. Vision)

It should be a lot of fun. Hope to see many of you there this Saturday.
