—From Liz Haywood-Sullivan

“In this topic-intensive workshop we will explore the intricacies of painting water and reflections in pastel. We will use underpainting to assist the development of the layers of transparency found in water. Topics to be covered include depicting reflections, how water behaves when calm and when moving, water in the dramatic seascape, how to use aerial perspective principles in water to create distance, seeing and painting correct values, plus much more. Each day will start with a demonstration and there will be plenty of daily individual instruction at your easel.“

Registration will open in the third week of May for PSSC members only. Registration will open to the general public in the third week of June,only if there are any spots left to offer.

Membership is only $30. If you are interested in this workshop, don’t delay and sign up, to be included in the priority registration notice! Sign up online at the Membership page.
