A 2 day workshop studying value and composition in the beautiful medium of soft pastel. Starting out with neutral non colour projects and moving forward into colour we will move thrugh exercises to enhance our understanding of colour, value and the effect of light on both.
Day 1- Small Painting Day
Discuss safety in using pastel pigment. Devices that can help us use pastel without increasing our risk to dust.
Discuss supplies such as different papers, favourite pastels and their various uses, favourite brands. Q & A>
First day sketches- morning - balck and white on middle gray ground. Seeing shapes in the negative and positive spaces, and using value to create drama. Sketch reference material provided.
Registration for this workshop is through the Old School House Gallery in Qualicum Beach, the contact # 1-250-752-6133
Afternoon - "colour has value" choosing 3 values of one hue and matching that colour to the corresponding neutral gray scale. We will work on both neutral and coloured surface- keeping this exercise in mind our class will complete some small colour paintings.
Day 2 - Landscape Day
References will be supplied - however if people have material of their own they would like to use please bring it along.
After completing 3 small thumbnails of reference material we will transfer the most successful sketch to our boards and hopefully complete our landscape.
