Yorkshire Seascape In Pastel with Catherine Inglis

Tue, 18 Jun 2019
10.00am - 4.00pm
Description Long

Join returning award-winning artist Catherine Inglis in a full-day workshop exploring the Yorkshire Seascape. The workshop will delve into the elements of cliffs, beaches and the sea to develop your skills.

Attendees will receive a short demonstration from the artist before the practical session illustrating how pastels can be worked to create amazing results, helping students learn how to master the techniques for these critical areas in seascapes.

Tips and tricks will be given throughout to understand what makes for good composition and notes on perspective alongside the importance of using tonal values, colour selection and mark-making to help you produce a fantastic masterpiece in one day.

Cath will have sheets of Canson pastel paper as well as the Sanded paper she uses for you to buy, if required, at a very reasonable price.

What you need to bring with you:

  • Soft pastels, but not any oil pastels
  • A board to take an A3 size Canson paper at least! Size 18 inches x 24 inches is a good size.
  • White, or light coloured paper is not good for pastel use. The artist will have paper available to purchase on the day.
  • An easel, table or free-standing
  • An old tea towel for keeping the hands clean
  • Baby wipes
  • An old oil painting brush and a rubber (to get rid of any mistakes, pastel is very forgiving).
  • A sheet of silver foil.
