5. Judith Carducci “All About Pastel”
Still-Life Workshop June 23-24
Pastel is such a rich subject that there’s no way to go over it “all” in a couple of days. But we can address how it is a unique artistic tool, both a drawing and painting medium; the variety of strokes; traveling with pastels and caring for them; framing options, advantages and disadvantages of pastel; the different types of pastel and surfaces; a variety of techniques for different “themes” and styles. And, why do we love pastel?
