“Painterly Pastels: Three Day Color
and Landscape Workshop”
April 13-15, 2018
9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Location: Jerry’s Artarama
West Hartford CT


Learn how pastels can create expressive paintings that are filled with atmosphere and light. The first two days will focus on color. While painting from still life, students will learn a simple method of identifying/mixing color as well as choosing a palette to discover your personal color sense. In the second half of the workshop students will apply the color information to landscape painting. The focus will be on design – using limited values and color harmony to create landscapes infused with light. During the workshop a variety of techniques will be introduced to enhance the painterly quality of the pastel medium. The workshop will consist of demonstrations, discussion, handouts and lots of personal critique from the instructor.
