The primary focus of this workshop is painting landscapes in pastel. Two of the three days will be in the studio, and, weather permitting, one day will be plein air. Although the subject matter will be landscapes, adding a figure to the landscape will be introduced for those students who are interested.
Working from their own photo references in the studio, students will transform them into pastel paintings using the principles of color, value and design. Along with daily painting demonstrations, Aline will emphasize the understanding of color in terms of temperature, intensity and value using pastel techniques. Individual attention and group critiques will serve to help students in their efforts.
