Concept and Experience
Create a uniquely personal presence in your pastel paintings using the significance of color and light. Learn how to identify and mix color and tone, as well as layer material to achieve a rich, glowing, and convincing sense of light.
Working from provided still life arrangements, including simple forms, fruits, vegetables, and reflective objects, you will gain confidence and better understand how to assemble compositions, render form, depict color, and handle materials. Rosalie will provide lectures demonstrations, and one-on-one instruction throughout the process. No experience in pastel is required, however a basic drawing background is helpful.
Open to novice to advanced beginners.
