Exploring Pastels: Birth Month Flowers
May 19, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm$60
In this workshop, you will learn to create beautiful, small pastel drawings using a limited palette, reviewing and practicing various layering and mixing techniques that are unique to the limited pallet approach. There will be a special focus on birth flowers. Flowers, like gemstones, have a traditionally designated month that they represent. Discover your own birth flower and learn to create depth and richness using color in unexpected ways. You will also consider foreground and background as we learn different ways to depict our subject within a natural or abstract environment. Each participant will create a color study and a completed 6×6 soft pastel drawing on sanded paper. No experience is necessary. All levels welcome. Each student will work from and be encouraged from where they are. If you have taken one of Deborah Johnson Kidwell’s workshops before, you can bring in your 64 ct. soft pastel pallet and save $8 off the price of this workshop.
