Come and enjoy a day of immersing yourself in the luscious medium of soft pastels! This workshop is designed for artists of all levels who are either new to pastels or want to improve their existing pastel paintings. A variety of techniques will be covered and various supports introduced. Try out and compare different papers and boards for either a rough or soft look, then we'll experience the lush surface of suede board - a perfect match for soft pastels! Through demonstrations, personal attention and critiques, Karin will focus on the elements needed to create a successful painting, such as strong composition and design, exciting colour, and tonal values.
