Pastel Workshop with Colin Hayes - Sunday 8th October 2017

Overview: This is for artists who are keen to try working in soft pastel, or who already have some experience. Proficient pastellists are more than welcome too! Soft pastels are a wonderful medium: versatile, expressive, quick and easy to apply, and forgiving. They also combine well with other media such as watercolour, ink, and acrylic. They work for all subjects, and being a dry medium can remain fresh and stable (under glass) for centuries. Degas was one of the greatest exponents.

Ragwort Meadow (Hayes)Programme: I shall begin by providing detailed guidance on the practicalities of using pastels both in the studio and en plein air, and on the range of available brands and supports. Printed notes will be provided for members of the class to take away, and a bibliography of good ‘how to’ books and CDs on pastels. Using finished works of my own as examples, I shall then demonstrate the steps in how I build up a successful pastel painting, the way I use the sticks, and techniques for achieving different kinds of effect. The class can then briefly experiment with these. Members will then create a work or works of their own, using either sketches or photo references or their imagination. I shall advise and critique individually as they develop.

Blakeney (Hayes)Bring:
• Sketches or photos from which you would like to work.
• Your easel and board, floor-standing or table-top.
• All the soft pastels you have. (Not oil pastels)
• A mid-tone pastel pencil. Stabilo are good.
• 2 large sheets of pastel paper in a mid-tone of your choice (e.g. sand or grey but not white). Tindalls stock both the standard Canson pastel paper and Canson Mi-Teintes Touch; the latter has an excellent fine abrasive tooth.
• A small stiff brush, e.g. size 3 hog, and a putty rubber.
• A small lid or box to hold the pastels you select for your work.
• Flannel or wet-wipes. • A nose-mask if you are uncomfortable with pastel dust.
• Black ink and reed-pen or sharpened stick (optional).
• Fixative (optional). • Jam-jar and large soft brush (optional). 

Prepare: Do look at some leading pastel artists. Google: The Pastel Society and go to their Mall Galleries entry which contains many works from this year’s exhibition. Also Google John Tookey, whom I much admire, and again select his Mall Galleries entry.

Workshop cost: £30 for Members and Friends, £40 for Non-members. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided but please bring a packed lunch.
