Pastels – Putting the Wow factor in Florals and Seascapes.
This workshop will enhance and extend the knowledge and skill level of every participant. We will thoroughly investigate aspects of composition and gain a clear understanding of the relationships of line, tone, colour and edge. Pastel will be used in a sculptural way to create pastels that demand attention. There will be plenty of demonstrations and individual attention at the easel. Open to all comers who have previous knowledge of using the medium of pastel 18 years and over.
