Painting The Night With Pastels with Frances Obie
1 Day: $115  or 2 Days: $190

All supplies except pastels included.  Please bring an easel with you if you have one.
Ages 16 to adult

This 2 Day workshop will be an exploration of colours, values and how they are affected when working on black surfaces.  We will cover application techniques on two different surfaces.

Day 1: After a brief introduction, we will practice some essential pastel techniques and apply these to the development of a painting.  Working from a photo we will cover the step-by-step process of developing a moonlit landscape from thumbnail sketch to completed piece.

Day 2:  Participants are invited to bring their own reference photos of evening, early morning or night landscapes.  Sunrise or sunset scenes are good.  We will build on techniques and discoveries from Day 1.  Both days include demos and individual tutoring.  *If you have no experience working with pastels on black paper, Day 1 is required to attend Day 2.

All levels of experience are welcome!

All materials will be provided except pastels.  Please bring a medium-soft set with a good colour range.  Suitable brands are Rembrandt, Mungo, Art Spectrum, Rowney, Richeson, Please bring Soft Pastels (Unison, Sennelier, Schmincke); hard pastels and pastel pencils if you have them.
