"Lyn Asselta Virtual Pastel Demo - Inviting Intention"
November 12, 2022
Lyn Asselta discussed thinking about the story you want to relay in your painting rather than just trying to paint a pretty scene. In her demo painting, Lyn wanted to relay a sense of mystery by asking the viewer to wonder what happens further along the path. She uses thumbnail sketches to work out the composition, format (square, rectangular, etc.), and values.
