Key Details

Painting Striking Pictures using Pastels

Carol will show you how to pastels with wet and dry techniques.

Using pastels ‘wet’ is a very effective method for painting reflections and ripples and great for producing paintings of water-based birds and animals.

She will also teach you how to use pastels ‘dry’ and pastel pencils for getting fine detail into a wide range of animals as well as choosing the right background.

Carol will demonstrate the various stages of painting animals and will give plenty of one-to-one tuition throughout. She is an enthusiastic tutor and it gives her enormous pleasure to see people achieve the results they want in a painting.
