Linda Andreatta

Kay Elsasser

Watercolorist Kay Elsasser is a fast painter and typically starts and finishes a painting during every class (see one of her recent paintings below). As I’ve told her, I don’t know how she does it, what with holding her brush like that.

Fran Tomlinson’s work on this pastel falls in the category of Ripley’s Believe It or Not, or perhaps painting the Sistine Chapel. The picture in the upper left is the photograph she is rendering in pastel; she drew a grid over it to help her render the proportions accurately  when drawing it on her pastel paper. The photo in the lower left shows Fran with her drawing, last April. The other two photos are recent ones. We are all in awe of Fran’s dedication and meticulousness.
