Do you want to learn how to paint with the pastels? It can be very overwhelming with all of the choices of different products out there on the market. This workshop will provide you with UART Premium Sanded Pastel Paper and a variety of pastels for use during the workshop to learn techniques and to complete a landscape painting.
On the first day of the workshop, Kathy will begin with a hands on introduction to using different types of pastels and UART Sanded Pastel paper. Students will experiment and practice pastel painting and gain a better understanding of underpainting techniques.
On the second day, Kathy will discuss the components of a successful landscape painting and you will then work alongside as Kathy demonstrates her process step by step. A photo reference will be provided, but you are welcome to work from your own reference photo if preferred.
This event is being held at Open Sky, a modern fusion of retail, gallery and workshop space for artists. Visit them at https://www.facebook.com/oneskystore/
