In this workshop Doug will cover principles and techniques he uses in his own art. Including, but not limited to, three patterns of design; how to find color solutions as you paint; how to create exciting and harmonious color. Pastel is the best medium for learning about color precisely, because of its limitations, as one can only combine pastel colors by layering one on top of another. Doug will illustrate different approaches to layering color. An important skill in landscape painting is the ability to separate space into a foreground and background plain. Students will learn the five principles used to create the illusion of depth in a painting.
Doug Dawson has received awards from a number of different art organizations, including but not limited to: The Pastel Society of America, American Watercolor Society, Knickerbocker Artists, The National Academy of Western Art, Southeastern Pastel Society, Pastel Society of West Coast, Pastel Society of New Mexico, Audubon Artists, Kansas Pastel Society, Pastel Society of the Southwest, and the International Association of Pastel Societies. To honor his achievements, he was given the title of Master Pastelist by the Pastel Society of America (NY, NY) in 1985 and awarded the title of Master Circle by the International Association of Pastel Societies in 2005 (California). He currently teaches at the Art Students League of Denver. He wrote a book titled “Capturing Light and Color with Pastel. His work is included in over 60 books and magazine articles.
