Let us enjoy the special colors, sizes and shapes of pastries! Our workshop will begin with exercises to explore composition and design, and the best arrangements of pastries in relationship to one another and the picture plane. We will creatively consider the unusual colors, textures and shapes of pastries. In the beginning of the workshop, we will discuss the work of Wayne Thiebaud who became known in the 1960’s for his paintings of pies, cakes, pastry and deli counters, gumball and pinball machines, street scenes and more. After Paula’s demonstration in pastels, each participant is invited to develop one complete work in the media of their choice. Paula will assist individually as you work toward a finished portrait of pastries.
Please bring pastries and a complementary plate or napkin for your still life.
