This 4-day course will guide participants in exploring the landscape of the local area through the vibrant and expressive medium of soft pastel.
Our time will be divided between tuition in specific areas such as Pastel drawing techniques, colour mixing and layering, composition and the theory and aspects of Landscape Art as a genre.
Additionally we will be spending brief periods outdoors taking notes, small sketches and photographs to bring back to the studio where Dave will work closely with students on a one-to-one basis in developing their own finished pastel drawings.
Dave’s unique approach to pastel drawing is characterised by strong mark-making, limited blending and as much as possible preserving the intense colour of pastel pigments.
* Cost does not include accommodation. Artform also provide an artist accommodation package.
