Join Bonnie Griffith for this workshop and punch up your pastel painting skills! The class will focus on pastel techniques that Bonnie uses to create dynamic landscapes in the studio and in plein air. You will work on two different papers (provided by instructor) and learn the value of underpainting plus other points to achieve paintings with a punch.
Attendees should bring easels, small sketchbook, a couple of ½-1 inch old, soft brushes, (for underpainting), soft pastels, some dark and light values of hard pastel sticks, latex gloves (optional), aprons and any of your usual pastel painting supplies. Bonnie will provide two options of paper to be used in the workshop. Some favorite pastel sticks will be available for students to purchase.
