Description

Portraiture in Pastel Workshop - six week course for intermediate to advanced

Dates: 17th June, 24th June, 1st July, 8th July, 15th July, 22nd July
Mondays, 18:00 - 20:30.


Course Description:

This workshop is aimed at those who have already taken the beginners charcoal workshop, or already have the confidence and experience of working on portraits from life. Participants will have the opportunity to explore the pastel medium. More complex poses will be explored with the development of expression and creativity. Students will develop their knowledge in the use of colour, focusing on warm and cool tones, light and shadow, and how this can be achieved with a limited palette. This will bring confidence when progressing to acrylic or oil paint.

Easels and drawing board provided. Students must bring their own pastels, paper and drawing materials. A recommended materials list will be provided upon booking.

Detailed Description:

  • The first session will be a drawing of master copy in red conte crayon, charcoal and white pastel on toned paper. This will be an introduction to the limited palette, and will emphasise the many possibilities that can be achieved with only three colours.

  • The second session will be a drawing from life, putting to use the knowledge gained from the first session.

  • We’ll then introduce and explore the use of warm and cool colours in the limited palette, and how to achieve vibrant and realistic tones.

  • The final two weeks will focus on one long pose where we can put all our efforts into one drawing. We’ll work closely on the tonal underdrawing, gradually layering the pastel, taking our time to understand the properties of each colour and how to use this effectively.

  • Drawing principles will also be worked over and developed throughout the course.
