Learn pastel painting techniques using hard and soft pastels. This is a “how to” class for beginners with demonstrations and lots of individual instruction. If you already know “how to”, you’ll learn “what now”—taking your pastel painting to its next level. Working from still life subjects and your own photo references, you will learn the basics of composition, values, the use of cool and warm colors, and much more.
In Acrylic Impressionism, it is the feeling of the finished piece that is important. Using photo references and still life objects, we will be working to capture the visual impression or feeling of the moment vs. achieving an accurate depiction.
Painting with small brushes and palette knives, we’ll experience an outpour of emotion and energy in our work and experiment with the shifting effect of light and color.
