Artist Orit Reuben will be offering a pastel demonstration on September 21st from 5:30-7:30.
Award-winning artist Orit Reuben is an impressionist pastel painter. Born in Israel to a family of artists, Orit is greatly influenced by her late grandfather, a painter. As a child, she painted at her mother’s side, who still paints.
Orit is inspired by the beauty of nature and loves to paint outdoors where she can truly experience her surroundings. She draws inspiration from light effects and loves to observe how objects are illuminated. Her paintings often depict glow and intense light. Orit prefers to paint on sunny days, which are plentiful in Florida, where she resides. Her innate sense of color results in playful and inventive color palettes.
In her previous career, Orit was an interior designer, which is why she often includes structures in her paintings. She finds compositional balance in the combination of linear geometry and organic plant shapes.
Orit is a signature member of The Florida Painters, a member of Pastel Society of America, American Impressionist Society, and a Master Pastelist of the Southeastern Pastel Society. She participates in plein air events and draws inspiration from the landscapes she encounters where she lives and on her travels.
Limited seating is available, RSVP is required.
