Pastel Painting (Still Life)
Tuesday 23 May 2017
Explore painting a still life in pastel. I will set up a still life (or two) and we will go through initial setup, blocking in, and working into details and we will touch upon all topics that come along during the painting process. I will paint along with you, while explaining the various stages of a pastel painting. We will discuss colour choices, mark making, layering, colour mixing, drawing, shapes as well as more practical things such as paper types and pastel brands.
The kitchen has limited space: there is room for 2 students using table easels and around 3 small floor easels. Feel free to bring your own small floor easel if you have one (let me know), but I can provide one for you as well. If you prefer to work from table easels we can extend the table to create more table space.
