|Twilight Pines, Pastel on Pastelbord, 16 x 20 inches|
Turning on the Light: Learn about using values and contrast to give a painting life. Colorful light is the first thing you see in a painting.
Suggested materials to bring:
Small still life objects, a photograph or an unfinished painting.
Pastel paper or Pastelbord at least 11 x 14 inches in size
Soft pastels (not oil pastels)
Floor Easel or table easel - It is much easier to work upright to keep your pastel painting clean and fresh
Board, cardboard or foam core to put your paper on to work on the easel
Tape or clips to hold the paper on the board
Viva paper towels and/or an old soft towel, hand wipes
Apron or comfy old clothes
Paper or sketchbook for notes and drawing
If you are a beginner and do not have pastels but want to give them a try. Call Jo and she will bring some pastels and paper for you.
