Live Demo - Insights into the Creative Practice | Lyn Diefenbach

What do pears, petals and portraits have in common?

Answer - Each has “round bits” but a portrait seems to be so much scarier! In reality, a portrait just has multiple “round bits” as opposed to a pear that only has a few.

Let me take the fear away and show you my approach to a number of subjects in both oil and pastel. The 2 mediums are very closely aligned but one is oily and one is dry.

I’ll show you my application for both media in a number of short informative demonstrations and leave you with the “Yes I can do it” attitude for taking on every challenge no matter what the subject or medium.

Course testimonials:

  • I loved every minute of Lyn’s demo! Lyn was entertaining, engaging, and the open course provided a wonderful opportunity to gain some insight into the world of pastels and oils. It’s been many years since I’ve put paint to paper, and after last night’s session, I feel inspired, and also feel the creative spark has been lit again. Thank you for such a fantastic evening! Looking forward to attending many more, I will be recommending to all of my friends! Stephanie S from Lota
