Sunday 16th November 2014

10 am to 3.00pm.


This workshop deals with some basic pastel techniques and answers some of the questions you have about the medium.

Pastel Techniques

This workshop is designed to improve your understanding and experience with dry pastel.

It will cover basic pastel selection and a discussion about what surface (substrate) to use to gain the desired effect. How and what to use in order to achieve your objective.

We will work through some exercises using a still life or other reference. Bring your questions! Ask me how you can achieve that effect you want.

You could bring along some reference of a subject which you would like to paint.

You will need Canson paper or one of the sanded papers. I can also show you how to prepare and use a board such as Gatorfoam in order to produce an interesting textured surface.
