WI Pastel Workshop

I was pleased to be asked by the ‘County WI’ to ‘Tutor’ a Pastel Workshop.  It was held at the Millennium House, Pensilva, on 10th October, for a group of 14 in no students.  They came from all over the ‘County’, the WI Groups they belong to were from Helston, Penryn, Lostwithiel, Perranuthnoe, Stithians, Wilcove, Downderry/Seaton, Boscastle, Bodmin and Liskeard.  If I say so myself, they had a great day, completing 2 paintings, 1 a Snow Scene the other an Autumnal River Scene. See below evidence of all their hard work, ‘Well Done Ladies’.



Learners Paintings in Tone

Completed tonal exercise by the ‘Blisland’ Art Class Learners, showing a variety of chosen colours creating Great Tone.  Well done all of you.







Tonal Painting ‘Class Demonstrations’

Tonal Painting Scotland Cottages  Working in one colour, helps you to understand ‘tone’ better, the hue, is the colour i.e. red, blue, yellow etc…  The tone is the lightness or darkness of that colour.  In Watercolour, when working on a white surface, the light is represented by the paper, the artist is in large, painting shades.  Areas of white paper can be left, creating ‘VITAL’ highlighted contrasts.Tonal Painting Godolphin
