If you have ever wanted to explore pastel but didn’t know where to start, this workshop is for you! We will spend 3 days learning about this wonderful medium and how to work with it. We will also cover history, materials, palette choice and arrangement, tips and tricks, surfaces, mark making, value, color, temperature, composition, underpainting techniques and more as it applies to any subject. Discover how to work from photos and not be a slave to them and painting from life.

Brief overview exercises, demos and lecture each day.

Day 1: History, materials, palette, mark making, papers, storage, framing, value, thumbnails composition, etc.

Day 2: More on value, color, temperature, still life exercises, demo, still life painting from life

Day 3: Overall composition through the elements, creating finished painting from your photos

This is the foundation class for pastel. You will learn various techniques and choices from here and this will get you going to other specialized workshops in pastel that I will be offering. Such as more in-depth composition, portraits, figure, landscape, mixed media, etc. I hope you love pastel as much as I do after attending this workshop!
