First SASA Meeting for 2015

On Thursday 29 January, we held our first members’ meeting for 2015. Welcome back everyone.

Our guest “speaker” was Vicki Norcliffe, who demonstrated her wonderful technique for creating portraits in pastels.

Vicki’s first step was arranging and lighting her model, Desire, who always does a great job of sitting for us!

The audience was captivated as Vicki, starting with a few carefully placed charcoal lines and, using swift strokes of colour, which were blended, smudged and overlaid, built her portrait in a remarkably short space of time.

I’m sure there are many of our members who’ll be doing some experimenting with pastels. Thank you Vicki, for sharing your fresh approach and giving us a new set of creative “tools” to work with
