During this workshop we’ll explore how to avoid muddy tired colors in a pastel painting and make confident color choices whether you want to capture a bright sunny day or subtle atmospheric effects. The introduction demo will illustrate the specifics of color layering and underpainting techniques to create beautifully nuanced color, depth and texture.
In a series of exercises we’ll explore how using different color characteristics we can improve the overall design, create more dynamic composition, make a stronger visual statement.
For a final work, students will have a choice of working from their own reference or using one of the provided photos.
All levels of experience are welcome.
List of materials will be provided.
