Zoom workshop by Tony Allain PS, PSA, MC-IAPS, MPANZ

CREATING MOOD & ATMOSPHERE IN PASTEL: using confident ‘brushwork’!Have you ever wanted to bring a looser and more painterly feel to your work loaded with juicy color and flooded with light? Fear not. The cavalry is coming!!!

Join me and I will share some of my working methods concentrating on painting landscapes and seascapes from photographs that delight you and excite the viewer. Using our reference photos we can bring some fresh color and a more painterly feel to our works. We will look at choosing, editing, and cropping our reference photographs. We will learn how to find the point of interest from the photo. I will supply a selection of reference photographs for you to experiment with. Our aim is to capture the essence of the subject in an intuitive way with the freedom of ‘brushwork’ that has its roots in the alla prima work of the French Impressionists, giving liveliness and vigorous mark that is instrumental in expressing the mood and atmosphere on a subject............. I wish to share my passion with you.

You will need:

Toned Sketchbook: grey or tan colored pages.Three Ink markers: fine point, med chisel, large chisel.

Other materials include sketchbooks, graphite pencils, etc for making thumbnails. Your own choice of paper and pastels.

Tony lately has been using Sennelier La Carte, Pastel Premier, and UART in various sizes. For pastels: Unison, Terry Ludwigs, Diane Townsend, and others.
