Under Paintings For Pastels with Dannielle Mick
Sunday, April 24, 2022 - 10am - 3pm
Pastel is perhaps one of the most versatile and expressive mediums available. So why not add to the depth by applying an under painting. The under painting plays an interesting role in finished work. The beauty in your pastel painting is the creation of the many layers of color that are used and the refractive quality when it sits upon those layers.
Under paintings can add depth and luminosity to your pastel depending on the technique you use. There are many. You can use your pastels and add water, rubbing alcohol or mineral spirits. Watercolor, acrylic or gouache paints also can be used. You want to block in color not worrying about details or drip marks.
Through the use of photographs provided by the teacher students learn about subject matter, composition, value and light in creating finished works in pastel.
Demonstrations and class critiques will round out this informative workshop. Play and have fun!
