The radiance of pure colour – Anne will teach you how to control that colour. This is a three-day course that will introduce you to the methods of painting with soft pastels – from choosing your subject, composing the painting and finishing the work.
Composition, value, colours, types of paper, application of pastels will be covered, with explanations and demos.
For this method we use sanded pastel paper which is good for the layering we will do with hard then soft pastels to give a vibrant painting.
Expect to make 1 8 x 10” painting each session (3). If weather permits, we will paint outside (plein air). At the end of the course, there will be a group discussion and critique of the work.
SSANC will provide a basic set of pastels and sanded pastel paper.
Please see the list of what students need to bring.
