Instructor Andrea Fenner will present an introduction to pastel on suede matboard techniques. You can use your own personal photo of a landscape with water as the subject or one of Andrea’s if you do not have a photo. Andrea will work with participants of any level to improve their skills.
The instructor prefers to work with hard pastels (Nupastel) but soft pastels can also be used. The Warehouse has Nupastel hard pastels available to use for an extra fee of $5 payable the day of the class. Lunch Break- pack a lunch or enjoy lunch around town!
Please see the complete list of supplies and class description from Andy below:
CAPTURING WATER WITH PASTELS
We’ll be painting on a canvas of suede mat board with the
objective of creating a unique and pleasing finished painting.
What to bring:
1) A suede mat board of a standard size (there will be mat boards available at The Warehouse exclusively for this class). . .
8×10 for a 5×7 image
11×14 for a 8×10 image or
16×20 for an 11×14 image
You can find this at most framing shops for a nominal fee.
Any color of mat board will work but lighter colors make the
project much easier. I will bring some extra canvases for students
to purchase if they cannot find them elsewhere.
2) Masking tape and a ruler. We’ll use this to set the
perimeter of the painting.
3) Hard or soft pastels. I prefer hard pastels but soft
ones work as well. You can bring pastel pencils to help with
details. Do not bring oil pastels. (See above for what The Warehouse has)
4) A favorite photo of a landscape water scene that
you would like to transpose into a pastel painting. The emphasis
here is to paint from a photo, not a picture that you
have found in a magazine or calendar. I will bring my library
of photos that you are free to borrow from. Arrive punctually
so that you have time to select a photo, if that is your intention.
