Follow Susan’s step-by-step approach from the underpainting to the finished piece using  photo references.  Several different underpainting approaches will be demonstrated including watercolors, acrylics and alcohol washes. There will be plenty of individual attention at the easel. Learn how make good choices on composition and color when working from a photo reference to create powerful, emotional pastel paintings.

You will have the option of painting along using the same photo reference as Susan.  This step-by-step method will provide an organized framework for your future pastel paintings taking the mystery out of where to start, what type of pastels to use, and saving you from feeling overwhelmed by unfamiliar or complicated subject matter. The procedure translates beautifully to other mediums.

A variety of reference material will be available or bring your own. All levels are welcome.

This workshop will be packed with information and fun!
