Patricia Gray Pastel Painting Vancouver




This is the first class of my venture into the world of pastel painting at Emily Carr University Vancouver. It is a new medium to me and this is an experiment to see if I like it. So much to learn about pastels. I love the beautiful colours and the immediacy of this medium. We spent the first class getting used to different papers, line strokes, how to apply pressure and shading. Our subject was an apple. Quite basic, but profoundly complex at the same time. I can better appreciate the art of still life painting now-it's all about capturing the essence. We were instructed to concentrate on value, line strokes and composition.
