FEB - Effective Waterbased Underpainting for Pastels Workshop - with Trudi Whitcher (Mandurah)

Thursday 27th February
10:30am - 1:30pm
Cost: $50.00 + Materials (list provided at time of booking)
Paid bookings essential to secure your place! *Payment is non refundable

About this Workshop
Having worked with pastels for a while most pastel artists make choices in the underlayers of their paintings which will impact positively on their finished picture, such as texture and colour of paper and the initial colour of their blocking in.

This workshop is designed to introduce you to water-based media underpainting. It is one more choice available to you to work more constructively with the initial layers of your pastel paintings. This method of working is quick and gives you a greater sense of control. It helps to reduces pastel build up in the paper’s tooth allowing room for subsequent layers and mark making. The working process will be demonstrated along with useful tips. 

Contact mandurah@jacksons.com.au to book.
