Come paint still life "stories" on dark/black paper, learning to see color and light in a whole new way. We will take every day objects in our set up and focus on a particular element such as glass or silver, perspective and cropping.
Those that have not worked on dark papers before will get to experiment with the beauty that the dark/light contrasts bring to your work. Working on smooth or sanded papers, soft and hard pastels will expand your horizons and you will enjoy a fun experience.

"Pastels are my tools of expression, and my love of pastels lets me enjoy painting landscapes, still life, figurative images and commissioned paintings. I love making ordinary stories extraordinary."
