Pastel Seascape Workshop/Demonstration

Pastels are a superb medium and one that I enjoy very much, so when I was asked by the Padstow Art Group to demonstrate and tutor a workshop, I jumped at it.

The group followed a step by step demonstration and here is my finished Pastel Painting.

I had an excellent day and I was kept supplied with refreshing mugs of tea throughout the day, thank you Padstow Art Group.

Comments from the day were:

I think a wow would go well here!!  what a day and thank you so much for coming across and giving us lots of Ideas. 
We will be using you again and I hope soon,  I think most of us went home rather tired so that must be a sign that everyone enjoyed it, I know I did and was very tired, 

Here are a few more images of the day.

    What a fantastic seascape!!

    And ……..what a fantastic result for you with the students’ paintings!

    I bet you were thrilled with their efforts.

    We won’t be playing Golf on Wednesday, the forecast isn’t good and Ian has a Dr’s appointment, so my plan is for a ‘creative’ day and finishing off my Beach Huts and then painting the ‘Homework’ picture..not to the same standard as your students, I fear!

    How did your Acrylics Demo go?
