Colorful Pastels from Photographs
Pastel is a fantastic medium and has the ability to merge painting with drawing. Pastel is a wonderful transition medium when going from watercolor to oils. This workshop is about color, value, and expression. If you already have a good collection of pastels, bring them in. If you are new to the medium, Amery is happy to help you get started. Students are encouraged to bring in a variety of photos with a good balance of light and shadow, as well as simple shapes like the image used for this workshop description. Amery will also provide a number of pictures for the class. The first day will begin with a demo, after which students will work on the same subject as Amery. The remaining days, students will work on a subject of their choice. Students will receive plenty of individual instruction.
