Pastel Landscape using Complimentary Colours
with Penelope Gilbert-Ng
Wednesday, 18 October 2023, from 10am to 3pm
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Students will explore how to simplify shapes within a landscape. Firstly by designing these shapes within a thumbnail (Notan) drawing.
This will be followed by several smaller exercises looking at complementary colours, creating mood. White pastel paper once toned with a watercolour under-painting will then be worked on using pastels. Students are encouraged to bring their own landscape images, either early morning or late afternoon references with shadows. An iPad is ideal for references to work from as the colours retain their intensity. List of materials supplied on Registration.
All are welcome at our HDG Studio:
37 Quarry Rd, Sherwood, 4075
