Bonnie Paruch

Creative Painting in Pastel - The Artist's View - Pastel

June 16-21, 2019 (Four Teaching Days)

This workshop is about learning how to see and to paint exciting subjects as you want them to appear. You’ll study how light affects color and value. You will learn to design an expressive painting that reflects your personal point of view. Bonnie will demonstrate a three-value system that will take the mystery out of creating a cohesive and powerful painting. She will share her “Big Picture” approach to composition and shape design. Working with a watercolor base and soft pastels on sanded paper, the pastel medium’s unique characteristics will be fully explored. Bonnie’s daily demonstrations, chalk talks and gentle group critiques will enliven a relaxed and informative workshop. You’ll leave the workshop with all of the tools necessary to express yourself in pastel. Weather permitting students will paint both in the studio and plein air. Students of all abilities are welcome.
