Pastels

 
 
 

Pastels have become Joan Grine’s favorite medium, a perfect choice for the plein air painting that she enjoys. She likes the textures you can get with the different papers and enjoys the variety of pastels sticks and pencils, and how some are softer than others.  When doing demonstrations in pastels for art associations or for the classes she teaches, she has to rely on photos for inspiration, but painting out on location is always her first choice.
