10am-2:30pm Drawing Trees with Pastels that Invoke Photography w/Ellen Wagner

November 2, 2023 from 10am-2:30pm

On the first painting you will work with black and white pastels on 800 grit mounted sanded pastel paper, 9" x 12".   Instructor will teach you how to use repetitive drawing patterns to create hyper-detailed paintings of different kinds of trees.

You will learn simple pastel painting techniques that you can use in any art you make.


On the second painting the Instructor will teach you how to use black and white drawings (like first drawing made in the AM)) then add color to create drawings that invoke photography with maximum detailed impact.


This class is for any level artist.  Everyone can make pastel paintings that "feel real!"  Please join this fun class and see how great you CAN paint!
