Sneak Peek – charcoal, pastels, snacks & wine

Judy Formato collects people – from bus rides, parties, meetings and invites them to her “POP” gatherings – Painting on the Patio. A few years ago I met her collection of very talented and welcoming women who have been meeting for many years to paint, chat and share resources.

I experimented with my newly purchased pastels to color two of my quickie life drawing sketches. 

The afternoons were topped off with wine and snacks.  Judy served a verrrrry tasty egg plant dip that had zing from some delicious pepper sauce imported by the family fine Italian food company Formato Brothers.

Here are my “befores” and “afters”:

  1. Your art is beautiful, Judy, very expressive. I really like the looseness of the first pastel and the sensation of light of the second. Have you sprayed them to preserve the pastel? They’ll waft on the wind if you don’t. (wind or not)
