Power of Pastel (September 22 & 24, October 8 & 9, or November 3 & 5)

Build a portrait along with Christine over two days using her 5-layer approach. Day 1 includes learning the system of finding a likeness for a portrait quickly. Then the afternoon will focus on Light- understanding it, seeing it and painting it – how light acts across the complex topography of the head. Day 2 focuses on understanding the pastel medium. Know when to use which brand. Know which pastels play nice with each other and which do not. The portrait started on Day 1 will be brought to completion on this day. And color? oh yes, let’s talk. $300 for the 2 days. Videos of the classes- both days – are $200. Payable through PayPal. Email Christine at christine@swannportraits.com to register.
