Expand your personal color horizons to create compelling paintings with vibrant, easily-applied soft pastels. Students learn how to use underpainting and a variety of loose techniques to bring new excitement and energy to their work.
In addition to composition and basic technique, you explore fabric and other surface textures as well as a landscape session. You'll learn to instantly layer countless colors that keep your creativity flowing. Change a hue with ease, mixing directly on a sanded surface. Learn to blend, scumble, and layer using traditional pastel painting techniques. Apply luminous patches of pigment next to rich neutrals to focus interest and retain depth. Reflect, illuminate, and bounce colors from object to object.
