Inspired by Degas approach to pastel painting this course covers a variety of pastel techniques including ways of layering and building up tones and colour to create finished pastel drawings. Experimenting with different papers, you will be encouraged to consider a more Degas approach to composition using dynamic cropping and asymmetry. Materials, supports and the history of pastels will be discussed.
