Judie Pufpaff

All of Judie’s paintings focus the joy, wonder and beauty of life. Her use of brilliant colors, high contrasts and interesting textures are indicative of that philosophy. Each original art work is created in a unique multi-media style. Judie uses 400lb watercolor paper, coated twice with ColorFix pastel ground. She begins the process of creating her images by first laying down an underpainting with colored pencil. Next Judie further saturates the color with pastels, followed by oil pastels until there is enough pigment to move around with a palette knife. Foregrounds are then enriched with layers of Sennelier oil pastels. The completed result offers a richness of color and texture that reflects the artist’s theme of “ The Spirit Within.”
