Workshop description

STUDIES TO PAINTINGS: A DAILY CHORE – Learn to use drawing and color studies to you advantage and to develop and enhance your paintings. Working loosely and using color effectively we will paint strong dynamic paintings. Learning a few tricks to aid in your decision-making is part of the building of a painting, whether using limited color choices or by building layers of color. Andrew will demonstrate some samples of quick studies in pastels, and will show how to develop further into finished pastel paintings. Reference/model will be supplied.
