How to paint Still Life Lemons in soft pastels with Jeanne Cotter
This 2 hour art class takes you step by step through the process of painting a bowl, lemons and the background. The first 15 minutes of the class is a charcoal drawing of the reference image with focus on tone, shapes and composition. The second part is painting in colour with soft pastels and includes a combination of drawing and blending the pastels with different techniques for each mark-making process to achieve the texture of lemons, the smooth surface of the bowl and light and shadow of the fabric. This class is ideal for students who have been painting with pastels before or those who want to try soft pastels.
