Join Jacob for this three day indoor pastel landscape workshop.  Focusing on the foundations of successful representational art, including composition, value, color, and drawing; and including specific exercises such as creating notans, small color studies, and underpainting techniques, Jacob will take you through the process of producing landscape paintings in pastel.

Each day will include at least one demo, followed by ample time for students to paint with assistance from Jacob at their easels. The first day of the workshop will emphasize the color study (plan to complete 4-6 paintings this day). Day two and three will involve completing more refined paintings, utilizing lessons learned from the color study process. If you are interested in learning in a supportive but challenging environment, this may be the workshop for you!
