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’.

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

‘Photo Format’ of the ‘En-Plein Air’ Painting Class at Blisland.’

The last day of the term at the ‘Blisland’ Watercolour Class, was a beautiful morning, and the planned exercise was a sketching and painting exercise in 15 minutes.  After a practice run indoors the learners went outside with sketchbooks and paint palettes and completed some further quick sketches ‘en plein air’.

The first set of images are of the learners themselves dotted around the heart of Blisland, sketching and paintings speedily, the second group of images are of the actual speedy paintings and sketches.  They all enjoyed the experience and have said that its something that they would do in the summer holidays.

And here are the quick sketches they all produced, on a lovely morning in Blisland.

Learners Paintings on the ‘Right Road’.

This weeks class subject matter, was for the Students to produce ‘Watercolour Paintings of ‘Wheels in varying condition / state’s of repair. As you can see the majority decided to produce paintings of wheels that have ‘seen better days’, BUT what they did produce were incredibly ‘Characterful’ / Life like Paintings, showing real Artistic Flair.

I am extremely pleased with their end results, Well Done Everybody.
