This two-day workshop begins with a discussion of materials, including soft pastel choices, paper samples and details of storing and framing pastels. Methods and various tools used will also be discussed. Frequent demos, group exercises and individual instruction. This workshop emphasizes balance and values to describe the rich spring landscape of showy gardens, a quiet pond, and the magnificent backdrop of the Shawangunk Ridge. Possible excursion to High Falls planned. From initial sketches, to under-painting with pastels, to a completed work, looking as part of process is stressed.
Plein-air, weather permitting (In case of bad weather bring a photograph to work from.)
