Last weekend I delivered a pastel portrait workshop in Bundaberg – once again a great group of people who were receptive to the theory and open to experimenting with using pastel and water. Hopefully they were all proud of their works, both the black and white study and the pastel portrait, as the standard was pretty high.
Part of the workshop included a two hour demonstration of a pastel portrait from life, so that I could demonstrate the beginning and establishing the shapes with water. The model was great and quite professional in her attitude. One of the participants took photographs throughout the progression of the portrait and consented to my using them in a blog.
