Pastel Artists: Learn how to capture the figure in a painterly fashion with this video workshop featurning Alain Picard!
Alain Picard teaches you how to paint a figure in pastel with a variety of lighting all in one scene, from bright highlights to deep shadows. You'll learn how to break an image down into simple elements to capture the figure accurately. Plus, you'll learn to paint light and shadows realistically in pastel to give your paintings great form and depth. These elements are what makes the finished work pop off the page, rather than looking flat and lifeless. You'll also learn how to capture the gesture of your subject and really portray their attitude and life, rather than just depicting their shape in space. Discover essential pastel painting techniques, like establishing edges in your work, underpainting with alcohol, and how to create a solid composition.
