NAMTA Art Materials Trade Show

I'm in Pittsburgh and just finished my first day of demonstrating for Indigo Art Papers. It is all so very exciting to see the products, the artists, and the buyers. 

Here is our both. The owner, Sundeep, is pretending to paint. Ha! See the banner? I did that. I'm not a graphic designer but tried to pull something together for the show. My paintings are also in the front.

I really have met some fabulous people and of course gushed over the Daniel Smith booth. The had their line of primatek colours displayed with all those gorgeous rocks. ( yes, I love rocks! They make pigment :) from which I can paint) I forgot my camera when I visited them so I'll try to remember tomorrow.

Then I met another really cool artist. He was creating this amazing painting of my favorite villain, Milificant from Sleeping Beauty. His name is Christian Masot. 

And here is what I demonstrated today. 


I really felt like I was going to be this little fish swimming with the big ones but once I got going, I felt good. It all just came to me and I'm happy with what I completed.

Thank you Carol. Having a blast!

Nancy Goldman said...

Your portrait is beautiful. How fun to be involved in this event. I've never heard of this paper. Where is it made?

Renee Dowling said...

You are indeed not a little fish in that stream! Your woman is gorgeous. Her hair is fabulous with all of the layers and colours and curls!

Leslie Redhead Watercolors said...

Thanks Nancy. The paper is a new company from Canada with a mill in India where the paper is made. They hope to have it in some of the major art supply stores soon. That's why I am here.

Renee, oh thank you! The whole experience did feel overwhelming at first but it's people like you that encourage me to keep going! I must admit that I do love what I do:)
