About this workshop
Quick start guide for working with pastels is ideal for those starting their pastel journey and those who want to go beyond dabbling with pastel. The workshop is designed to introduce you to the materials you will be using and the importance of what lies under the finished picture. Choice of paper, it’s colour and the colour of initial blocking in all impact the outcome of your artwork. The working process and the all-important mark making will be demonstrated and discussed along with useful tips Trudi has picked up over the years.

You will also look at making corrections when things don’t go to plan so that you can be confident when using this exciting medium. Finally, you will learn how to care for your materials and store finished artworks.

JAN - Exploring Abstraction using Watercolour with Stephanie Boyle (Balcatta)

**BOOKED OUT**

Jacksons Balcatta Store
Friday 17th January 2020
10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Cost $110 - all materials provided
 
Here is your chance to explore the beautiful Watercolour medium in a non-representative style. We will discuss the difference between an Abstract painting and a semi Abstract painting. You will be encouraged to apply a loose approach to your painting. We will achieve this with big, bold brush strokes and a limited palette.
 
We will experiment with Watercolour pens, wax crayons, inks and so much more. We are here to have some fun while discovering new and different methods to apply to our Art practice. Let us leave behind that fear of splashing paint around and the fear of a blank, white piece of paper. I am loving pushing the boundaries with Watercolour painting and can’t wait to share my different ideas and techniques. Beginners are welcome.
