Beach scene with sand dune by Mark Lawrence B0624

From: $130.00

Saturday – 8 June 2024

Suitable for beginners, you will learn about the different properties of papers and pastels and will use this to develop a beach sand dune starting with a charcoal drawing and then layering soft pastels on top.

The workshop topic will be creating a beach scene with sand dune. The course caters to both beginners and those looking to expand their pastel skills. It will cover materials (papers, pastels, etc.), and why they are important to gaining the best results. While the aim is to optimise materials for the beach scene, the information gained should also help in tackling other genera with soft pastels. We’ll all work from the same reference photo (to be supplied – the reference photo for the workshop will be different from the photo example illustrated here) and participants can look forward to creating a beautiful beach scene to take home and show others.
We will sketch out the broad shapes with willow charcoal, with attention to some compositional guidelines re focal points. Then we’ll fill the paper with background colour as a “wash in”. This provides the base for applying pastels in the main colours and midtones, finishing with some details and highlights.
