Follow Fran, step by step, in creating an amazing portrait
Fran creates a grid to use in changing the dimensions of the reference photo to her pastel paper. Fran Tomlinson recently finished a pastel portrait of her spouse, Joy, seated at the Knabe baby grand in their home. Joy is an accomplished pianist and loves that baby grand. Once Fran  got the idea of doing a “double portrait” that included both Joy and the piano, she spent a lot of time deciding on the composition—with or without metronome? with or without music on the stand? piano open or closed? Fran reports that ultimately… ... Read More

The Wednesday Studio Reconvenes
School’s back! Yes, indeed, on Wednesday the members of the Wednesday Studio were all in the—guess what?—studio! Before we reconvened, I asked people to share their thoughts on their summer and their goals for the fall session: Anne Shields: How I spent my summer vacation—I only worked on my “dog” picture, so I didn’t produce much, but I did proceed more methodically than usual.  It’s bigger than most of my work, and I actually did watercolor sketches of each dog before I started the painting. So maybe I learned a little… ...
