Expressive Pastels

August 27 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:30 am, repeating until August 29, 2022

Loosen Up, Add Some Spice to Your Paintings Instructor Karen Margulis.  It has been said that as artists, we are either moving toward or away from abstraction. No matter where we fall on this journey, we can all benefit from ideas to help us create more expressive paintings. I am always striving to interpret my subject by including my own personal touch rather than a copying the reference or painting exactly what I see. On day one of the workshop, I will share some of the ways I have discovered that help me paint in a more expressive ‘loose’ manner. I will introduce a simple method for a successful pastel painting from the planning stage to the addition of those final important spices! On the second day, we will explore the use of under-paintings and how they contribute to more expressive pastel paintings. I will demonstrate two different underpainting techniques. Students will use an underpainting to develop their paintings. On the third day, we will continue to explore techniques that will lead to more expressive paintings with an exploration of new and exciting ways to start a pastel painting. There will be demos, handouts and plenty of individual help at the easel during the workshop. Register online at
