Portrait in Pastels Large Scale | David Wells

Portrait in Pastels  Large Scale | David Wells

In this two-day weekend workshop, David will continue to guide you through the process of creating a Portrait in Pastels. The workshop focuses on a single exercise completed over the weekend, allowing you to deepen your skills in all of the elements such as open eyes, hands, patterned cloth etc…. all under the guidance of David’s expertise.

Students will have the opportunity to meet the subject, and of working partially from life should they wish to, however paper and reference material will be provided as in all of David workshops.

What will I learn?

In this Large-Scale Pastel Portrait workshop, you will create a single portrait on a full-size sheet (50cm X 70cm), while continuing to:

• refine your pastel and portraiture techniques
• explore your own mark and colour scheme.
• refine your approach to still life elements (Cloth and Jewellery)

David’s teaching style is relaxed and highly informative with plenty of step by step demonstrations throughout the workshop.
Our class sizes are kept small, ensuring you receive individual tuition required. .
