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 full list has been emailed to participants- please use that
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.
