John Tookey PS: Townscape in Pastel


Workshop Description

Pastel is a vibrant and responsive medium, ideally suited to quick responsive sketches, or longer more considered works. The workshop will begin with a demonstration using pastel over a water-based under-painting on mount board. Participants can then work individually from their own reference material, or some may wish to spend a little time sketching outside before working from the sketch back at the gallery. Individual advice will be given throughout the day. At the end of the session, we will review some of the work done during the day.

Required Materials

"Bring your usual range of pastels and supports. If you want to apply a water-based underpainting you will need a small set of water-based paints and some mount board cut to your preferred size (mid-toned). Other materials could include tissues, note or sketchbook, and reference material to work from."
