As a pastel artist, Shelly Eager likes to zero in close and create more intimate paintings. She pushes color and exaggerates what she sees to create excitement in her work. For this demo, Shelly will be painting a close up still life demonstrating how she tries to keep her painting loose and exciting from the onset. She will speak to how she chooses her photo references and color choices. Shelly will interact with the audience and answer any questions that are posed. It should be an entertaining and informative demonstration.
