TWO DAY WORKSHOP: DYNAMIC PASTEL PAINTING
This workshop is for those who have some experience in pastel and drawing, and see the need to extend their abilities in this exciting and expressive medium!. Teaching will encompass theory, and also demonstrations appropriate to the general theme- the vital art elements and principles of design as a basis and then through to various ways of utilizing technique, implication rather than detail; adding vitality and strength, using shape, balance, tonal range, and a suitable colour temperature range. We will explore the skillful mixing of colour and atmosphere in light, using urban and figurative subjects within this concept.
Emphasis will be placed on seeing things as ‘shapes’, and interpreting these in a painterly way, as light on form, or planes of light in its varying degrees in context. Individual approaches will be encouraged, whilst tutor ‘crits ‘will be offered constructively, along with teaching notes.
