Soft pastels and pastel pencils are a vibrant and inspiring medium. They are ideal for capturing the colours and texture of the landscape and the buildings at Flatford Mill. Pastels are a great medium for the subtle hues in a human portrait or the texture of an animal’s fur. Carole’s informative and enthusiastic demonstrations will guide you through a range of exercises to develop and extend your skills using this versatile and forgiving painting medium.  Suitable for all abilities. On Saturday we will do a series of exercises practising blending and mark making techniques for using soft pastels and pastel pencils on paper and/or textured board in addition to looking at colour principle. These may include tree studies, colour mixing for shadows, and recreating the texture of an animal’s coat. Topics such as composition, tonal contrast and working from photographs will also be covered. After a series of exercises, you will be able to work on your own choice of subject –  a landscape, or portrait of a well-known face, family member or an animal or pet. On Saturday evening, there will be a demonstration after supper in the studio On Sunday you will continue working on your own choice of subject whether it’s landscapes, portraits or animal studies.
