Join my drawing session where you will learn the basics of pastels drawing. We will learn from a French painter Pierre Bonnard.

“Landscape at sunset” depicts a spring or summer scene somewhere in the nature. Just by looking at it you can feel the freshness of the green grass and the smell of the sunshine. We will draw it with dry pastels.

You will learn:

– art history facts about this painting

– interesting facts about the life of Pierre Bonnard

– how to work with pastels when creating a landscape. You will learn three techniques for pastel sketching:

a) layering

b) blending

c) hatching and crosshatching

Pastels will be distributed during the class, just make sure to give them back at the end of the workshops.

What to expect?

– a short introduction on Pierre Bonnard and his paintings
