1 – 5 PM
Beginner to intermediate pastel painters. Using soft pastels, students will learn how to start a landscape painting with a simple pencil drawing followed by a watercolor (2-3 colors) underpainting to set-up shapes and dimensions. We will use UArt 500 grit pastel board, eliminating the need for an adhesive spray. From there we will begin using soft pastels working from a focal point out, dark to light to create the mood and capture the colors of the landscape. Students will learn techniques for blending pastels, layering pastels, and how to apply charcoal to soften edges and push areas into the background. We will apply the techniques the instructor has learned from his mentor, teacher, and friend Albert Handell. A list of suggested supplies is available HERE.
