Carol Kibble will show you how to paint animals and birds using various

techniques with pastels.


This 3 day course is designed to help you learn how to paint animals using

pastels and is suitable for all abilities. Whether you are new to painting,

new to pastels or simply want to improve your pastel painting, this course

will help you to achieve your goals.

Working from photographic reference, Carol will show you how to use

this medium in many different ways and will share her 'Top Tips'. In

addition to using pastels in a traditional way, Carol will introduce you to

'pastels with water' which although very effective, is rarely mentioned!

She will also teach you how to use pastels alongside pastel pencils and/or

sgraffito techniques for getting those fine details into your Paintings.

She will demonstrate all stages of painting a subject - paper choice,

composition, accurate drawing, colour choices etc. Plenty of one-to-one

tuition will be given throughout. Carol is a very enthusiastic tutor and it

gives her enormous pleasure to see people build their confidence and get

results with this fantastic medium.
