Pastels for Beginners with Lizzie Connor
This weekend is aimed at beginners, but would also be suitable for those with some experience with soft pastels. It will help to get you on your way with pastel and /or increase existing skills. Learners will be completing a series of exercises, starting off with some very simple ones, such as working in soft pastel on different pastel paper, and getting the feel of both the artists’ soft pastel and how pastel works over the diverse surfaces of different papers. Learners will explore the different techniques used with the pastel to create a variety of effects and textures, such as working with brushes and erasers, and adding water to the process. We will also be making our own textured papers to work on for Sunday.
