The Beginner's Quick Start Guide to Using Pastels at Jacksons Drawing Supplies in Midland - Saturday 12th September 2020
The Beginner’s Quick Start Guide to Using Pastels at Jacksons Drawing Supplies in Midland was a great success. Without a doubt, all participants would have enjoyed more time to work on their pastel painting after the materials introduction and mark-making exercises.
These enthusiastic artists were a brilliant class, such a pleasure to teach.
Marie has sent through a photo of her finished painting. A brilliant job was done in taking the reference photo and giving it her take, complete with birds and a bunny. This very green image was a challenge and was dealt with very well. The deep foreground shadows and introduction of sienna helped to push back the picture plane; A great first attempt at pastels.
