Product Description

Pastel Portraits

Instructor: Jane Steelman

Class Code: JS190105

Workshop fee: $120

Medium: Pastels

Saturday, January 5th, 10:00am-4:00pm

Have you ever wanted to paint your children, grandchildren or friends? Then this is the workshop for you. Pastels lend themselves to creating realistic portraits of people using the subtle skin tone colors available. They blend to create a luminescence not easily accomplished with other mediums. You will learn how to create an portrait from start to finish using reference photos provided or your own photos.

Supplies to bring:

Pastel Paper:

UART Sanded Pastel Paper grade 500 or finer (larger number = finer grit) cut down to 11x14

Soft Pastels: Mungyo Gallery. I like the handmade best but others will work. If you already have other brands such as Sennelier, Schmincke or Unison, they will also work well. This class is not for oil pastels.

Creative Mark Blending Tortillions (small & medium)

Latex or non-latex gloves

Gatorboard size 16x24 or foam core board large enough to mount your paper

Masking tape

Vine Charcoal

Eraser such as Acurit Vanish Four In One Eraser

Set of Semi-hard pastels for underpainting:

Brands to use: Mungyo or NuPastel

Set of Pastel Pencils. I recommend the Conté ŕ Paris set of 12 or Faber Castel PITT Pastel Pencils.
