In this workshop, learn to create the illusion of crashing waves in pastel. Go beyond the flat blues of photographs and enliven your seascapes with the colors in your memory. We’ll start with simple, abstracted underpaintings to build a strong foundation. Learn to crop photos for effective compositions, look at water’s reflective qualities and explore how light, motion and what lies beneath all affect what we see, and what we paint. We’ll explore special techniques that make water shimmer, flow and crash.
