Pastels offer the opportunity for an intimate and direct experience of painting. As you hold the pastel
in your hands, your finger pressure and style of stroke create an artistic energy that can build and build.
In this workshop, Paula invites you to set up your own ordinary objects, such as vases, flowers, fruits,
shells or any personal treasure. With pastels we will portray the beauty of textures and atmospheric
light. We will appreciate seeing color temperature, exploring lost and found edges, laying in strong
design. With a deeper grasp of foundational principles, still life painting can lead to more colorful,
vibrant paintings of all kinds.

This one day workshop will help you produce one or two finished paintings using objects of your
choosing and will build on wherever you are in the wonderful world of pastel painting, whether a
beginner or an accomplished painter. Paula will give demonstrations and work with each participant
throughout each day.
