About the workshop

This intensive day long course will look at creating atmospheric pastel drawings concentrating on the Landscape. During the course of the day we will study elements of composition, creating harmony within the work, layering, colour mixing and pastel drawing techniques. The theoretical elements will be put into practice by working on 2 separate landscape drawings.
