On this one day workshop you can pastel your own human portrait.  For this I will need a good photograph of the person you’d like to pastel.  Please email this to me. I’m being quite strict on the quality of this photo because the better the quality of the photo the easier it will be for you to achieve a likeness.  You’ll be using a grid to get a likeness then transfer to pastel paper.  I’ll then show you how to use Caran D’Ache pastel pencils to add the tones and highlights to create a 3D effect.   The cost, is £45 for the day including materials.  Refreshments included. Plus access to my Facebook Group to ask questions and continue your learning. Please bring your own lunch. Small non-refundable deposit of £20 to secure your place. (Balance due 1st March 2020) Gift vouchers available.
