In this intensive 3-day workshop, you will learn how to create a vibrant sense of glowing light in your pastel paintings. Instruction emphasizes value and temperature as keys to unlocking the light. Learn an underpainting method using pastel primers to “nail the values!” Multiple small works are encouraged for speedy artistic growth. For adventurous beginners all the way to advanced pastelists.
Rita will demo an average of twice daily, and at least three hours each day will be devoted to individual feedback and critiques.
This workshop is not subject specific. Students can work from their own photos, and Rita will bring some of her own to share. Demos will be mostly animals, with one or two landscapes thrown in.
