Mitsuno Reedy Demonstration (March 2011)


Originally from Osaka, Japan, Mitsuno Reedy has been doing a mixture of landscape, still-life, and portrait work since the late 1970s — notable portraits include: Luciano Pavarotti, and former Oklahoma governor Brad Henry.

On the evening of March 28, we provided her with a model (and a friend of the Art Guild), the lovely Juanis Sanchez.

it takes focus, patience.. all that fun stuff

measure twice, draw once

In addition to having a good model, and a video showing the audience what's going on, it helps to have a complete acre of pastels.

"Look at this! Now, look at that! ..amazing."

Here's looking at you

We want to thank both Mitsuno Reedy, and our model Juanis Sanchez. They were a great team, and it was so inspiring that I think we’ll have a few artists experimenting with pastels over the coming months!

Our next meeting is on April 25, and will feature Janice Mathews-Gordon. It’s our final meeting this season (until September), so we hope to see all of you there!
