The quest for 'perfection' can bring with it fear of making mistakes and can result in an inhibited style. I will share some of my working methods concentrating on painting landscapes, water, figures, sky, sunset 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 that are flooded with light.

We will add elements of abstraction but still keep some association with reality. This workshop is 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 also experiment with ways exciting ways to introduce more color and light into our work. Each day will start with a demonstration with heaps of challenges and loads of individual help at the easel.
