On limited occasions, I am available for basic one-day instruction sessions in painting intuitive small landscapes. These are workshops specifically designed for adult beginners. By introducing you to the wide variety of pastel supplies available and helping you understand the differences in pastels and surfaces, I can assist you in discovering the materials best suited for capturing your own vision of the landscape. We’ll also explore pastel painting from a place of intuition, putting this approach to work through simple exercises and painting time. Anyone can learn basic painting techniques, but the focus of these sessions will be on developing your own artistic abilities from an intuitive perspective, freeing your personal vision and interpretation of the landscape to cultivate your unique expression as an artist. We’ll use hands-on exercises and other effective art skills including understanding your materials, pastel layering, color and shapes to tap into your intuitive ability to see the natural world on a deeper level. You’ll learn to trust your instincts and paint fearlessly to tell your own expressive story using pastels. The class can be tailored to either soft pastels or oil pastels depending on student preference, and the session fee will include all materials. Please contact me for cost and details.
