pastel drawing workshop – week 1

Week 1 of Landscapes & Skyscapes with Lesley Cotter saw us working with shavings of chalk pastels.  We rubbed blue with a cotton ball to create the negative space of clouds. Creating soft wisps of nothingness in the peaceful atmosphere of The Honeyclock was a delightfully relaxing way to spend a Saturday afternoon… Then we added rose pink and a touch of lemon to the clouds, before grounding our pictures (and ourselves) with Prussian blue. Finally, a glow of lemon into the blue base brought the harmony of green.  A little bit tricky in parts, but a great start to learning a new technique! Thank you Lesley… Places are still available for the remaining 3 weeks.  If you are inspired by this reviewer’s experience, call us on 9434 1944…
