Pastels

Jan 2, 2022 | Classes

Pastel, pure pigment in stick form, is an immediate and versatile medium. Using sanded paper and underpainting techniques, a wide variety of effects are possible. The focus in this class will be on the landscape with particular attention to value, composition, and use of color to convey light in the natural world. We will experiment with a variety of underpainting techniques as a way to start a painting and since it’s winter we will work from photos.
