This will be a fast paced, fun exploration of many underpainting techniques using several different mediums and approaches. As pastel painters, it’s important to know how an underpainting can affect the overall mood and harmony of your paintings.
If you’re new to pastel, or even if you’re not and you want some new inspiration, this workshop will give you lots of options as you begin your painting process. Having a solid “foundation” can definitely be the start of more effective, expressive work!
