2 Day Pastel Portraits – Artable, Gold Coast

January 12, 2019 @ 9:00 am - January 13, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

Do you want to create portraits that breathe character and life? Portraits that convey a presence? Let Lyn show you how…

The workshop covers all aspects of portraiture, focussing on capturing a good likeness. You’ll learn how to manipulate relationships of line, tone, colour and edge to infuse your work with dimensionality and impact.

Lyn will discuss pastels and pastel surfaces as well as application appropriate to your individual subject. Enjoy clear, informative demonstrations and individual attention at your easel.

One portrait will be done from a photograph of your choice. Learn how to use a photograph as a painter’s tool and to go beyond its limitations. The techniques that you learn in this class will keep you in good stead when painting from life.

Definitely creating the WOW FACTOR.
