Tony Allain


Pastel Workshop


Wednesday, Thursday & Friday
 August 2, 3 & 4, 2017
9:00 am - 4:00 pm



The workshop will include discussions on pastel painting materials, surfaces, developing your painting style and working methods unique to pastels. Daily demo's emphasizing composition, color and technique will be done.
I will share some of my working methods in these workshops, concentrating on painting land, seascapes, figures and still life subjects that have a bit of punch! Using direct strokes on a textured surface to emphasize 'brushwork' we will learn how to simplify our approach to achieve exciting impressionistic paintings.

My workshops are for those willing to go through the door marked 'leaving your comfort zone' and enter a world of exciting and expressive pastel application! We will experiment ways in how to introduce 'color & light' into our work.  Each day will start with a demonstration with heaps of challenges and loads of individual help at the easel.
