The fun and slightly messy, but wonderful world of pastel. Pastel is a coloured drawing medium made from pure coloured pigment mixed with a binder to form a stick. This workshop will explore what soft pastels are, how they work, different papers and surfaces they can be used on. Using your art journal, participants will be playing with their pastels, getting to know a variety of techniques to explore on different surfaces.The journey is that pastels are lovely to work with on paper, very easy to blend and they create this great mixture between a drawing tool and a painting. You will smudge, stipple and blend your way through a composition through using subtle techniques, giving you full control to weave a medley of colours to create wonderful effects. You will use a number of textured surfaces to then tackle your own beach and shell composition as a starting point for a pastel artwork.
