The rich light and deep colors of the Mono Basin are a perfect subject for the brilliance of pastel chalks. The goal of this weekend is to work outside, on location, to make landscape studies in pastel. Each participant will go home with at least one small finished painting and several sketches, color studies, and value experiments that will fuel future artistic endeavors. Landscape painter and accomplished teacher Ane Carla Rovetta will help demystify the overwhelming hues of the summer. Photo courtesy of Ane Carla Rovetta.
