Portrait Painting in Pastel
Working in natural light, practice observing a model's form, color, and value relationships with a clear eye, and to distill this complex information into a simply expressed, harmonious construction. Students will engage in the intense color analysis intrinsic to working in pastel while exploring methods of pastel application. Images of historical works in pastel will be shown, exemplifying the full expressive potential of the medium. One model/pose will be available for the duration of the workshop; students may choose to create one portrait, or several.
