Soft pastel is a unique medium that allows you to draw and paint at the same time, with immediate and tactile results. You can apply it directly to the surface, no drying time to hold you back or brushes to swap around. Pastel is unique due to its exquisite color shading, airiness, elegance and illusory sensation that is all that empowers to render and express the beauty of the outdoor landscape.
Weather permitting, we will go outside and seek out and find the beauty in everyday life, our challenge will be making poetry out of prose. Nature is beautiful and we’ll pursue the elements of design outdoors: Rhythm, Scale, Depth, Texture, Color, Value, etc.
I will walk you through the three stages of a painting:
- drawing and composition
- final application of pastel
