About this Course

Using the still life as my subject, I will demonstrate how to block in, set value pattern, place basic color shapes, refine, and finish a lovely pastel painting on paper. There will be a demonstration each week, with time for questions and individual advice. I am pre-recording some of the demonstrations so I can discuss the process during the video, and answer questions during short intervals. Discussion topics include materials, techniques, composition, use of color. Before the first session, students will receive simple instructions via email on how to set up a simple still life so they can practice the concepts and techniques at home. The following weeks will include time for sharing and discussing student work online. Students who would rather keep it private can email me their work and I will respond with written advice. Returnees welcome!
