Pastel Workshops Spring 2014

In Spring 2014 we held two more of our popular All-Day Pastel Workshops. It was good to note that a couple of people from our classes at Codicote and Stotfold ventured to our Ware venue at Leaside Church Hall for the day. The subject for this workshop was Flamenco Dancers in Pastel.


Everyone brought along pictures of dancers the ladies in lovely bright dresses and the gentlemen in their traditional black and white outfits, these went well with the dark pastel paper provided.


On both days Anne started the workshop with a discussion and small demonstration of how to use the various types of pastels available together with a chat about the different sorts of paper to use. She then went on to start to show how she draws out the subject with either charcoal or a hard pastel. Then it was time for her to start to “paint” her flamenco dancer.


At this point everyone settled themselves down and began to think about their own painting. During the day most people did a couple of different paintings some of which can be seen in our gallery.
