Pastels with Ross Paterson

Dynamic Pastel Painting
12 - 18 JAN 2020
8.30 AM - 4.00 PM
USQ Toowoomba

This workshop is suitable for those who already have some experience in pastel and drawing.  You will be guided to extend your abilities in this exciting and expressive medium!  The workshop will encompass theory and demonstrations appropriate to the theme.  Vital art elements and principles of design will be taught as a basis and various ways of utilising technique and implication rather than detail; adding vitality and strength, using shape, balance, tonal range and a suitable colour temperature range. You will explore skilful mixing of colour and atmosphere in light, using landscape, urban and figurative subjects within this concept. 

Emphasis will be placed on seeing things as shapes and interpreting these in a painterly way, as light on form, or planes of light in its varying degrees.   Individual approaches will be encouraged, whilst tutor guidance will be offered in a constructive way accompanied by take-home notes.
