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 colour 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 colour 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 a liveliness and vigorous mark that is instrumental in expressing the mood and atmosphere on a subject............. I wish to share my passion with you
