Your pastel painting problems solved!
My aim is to raise your confidence using this wonderful and versatile medium. A short explanatory talk about the topic will be followed by a portrait painting demonstration in which I will explain the structure of the human head from the pastel-artists point of view. In the afternoon you will be able to enjoy painting/drawing in pastel from the model or alternatively please bring along material to inspire your own landscape or still- life group work.

Experienced artist and teacher Simon Fry returns with this pastel-based workshop invested with his in-depth knowledge of anatomy for artists and the works of the old masters.

If you love colour and want to express yourself really effectively then sign up for this pastel-painting workshop in which we will use the portrait as our vehicle of expression. In the morning session I will explain effectively the basics of rendering the head in line, tone and colour. In the afternoon you will work from the model and produce a great pastel painting.

Materials:
A range of soft pastels suitable for portrait work or landscape/still-life depending on your preference for the afternoon session.

You might find pastel-pencils useful too, I certainly do.
Suitable paper: mid tone neutral-coloured pastel paper and some sketching paper.
An easel or table easel is most useful but not essential.
Drawing board, tape, clips or drawing pins.
Cloth or paper towels (to keep your hands clean).
Dust sheet to cover the floor where you are working please.

If you’d prefer to work on a landscape or still-life piece in the afternoon session- please bring material to inspire you.
