Details

The joy of pastel is colour, control, and speed. Painting with pastels is building layers from dark to light as with other opaque media, whilst drawing with pastels is using lines and linear marks. Come and enjoy using pastels in a variety of subjects including landscape, still life, faces and figures. The weekend will include drawing instruction, perspective, tones and colour theory. Linda will demonstrate techniques and different subjects, you will then have a go. She does not expect everyone to produce the same painting, she teaches the techniques for you to use in your own way, and is used to teaching classes of mixed ability.

Linda Matthews has worked as a full time artist and tutor for 18 years. She is inspired by everything around her, she enjoys sharing the essentials of painting in the studio so you can experience fully the freedom of painting from life - en plein air - out of doors. She works professionally in most media. Her philosophy for painting is ‘Wherever you look there is something to paint. You can never be bored with a pencil, a sketchbook and a paintbox’.
