If you have a solid strong start you can create a strong painting. That is why we will be focusing on the underpainting in this workshop.
There are many ways and many benefits of using an underpainting on UART Premium Sanded Pastel Paper. The type of underpainting depends on the subject and desired end effect. In this workshop we will explore several options. Using strong, vibrant colors but not filling up the tooth of the paper is a great way to create a base upon which to add many glorious layers of pastels.
There will be a demo each morning using a different medium as an underpainting. There will also be an option to ‘paint-a-long’ from the same reference photo as Susan to really get a step-by-step approach of her technique from beginning to end. You will also have an option to work from your own photo reference as well as from a still life set up. You will receive individual instruction tailored to your specific needs, level and goals as well as a constructive critique of work done in the workshop as well as any work you bring along.
UART will provide you via email with a full list of materials before the beginning of the workshop.
