About the Course

On this two day workshop you will gain confidence in your pastel painting skills. Workshops develop in an un-hurried, relaxing way to enable you to develop your own style.

We will cover choosing the reference photographs and the different types of pastels, papers and other materials and accessories used in pastel painting. How to apply, blend and detail using pastel blocks, pencils and chalks.

Workshop Outline:
1. Studying your subject and choosing the right colours
2. Transferring images on to your paper
3. Underpainting and values
4. Detailing eyes and other facial features
5. Fur or feather detail and how to achieve a realistic look
6. Finishing touches
