"Color & Composition: Watercolor & Pastel"
October 1-3, 9:00–4:00

Pastel artists interested in getting a fresh perspective on painting the landscape beyond the usual “green scenes” will want to join us for this exploration of pushing the boundaries of colors and compositions found in nature. We will take an experiential, non- academic approach to maximizing your color and compositional skills that offers ways to expand on an overwhelming blue/green palette, the dullness of the light, or the limitations of any available scene. Working from your own photos, watercolors and pastels, Colette will use direct instruction, numerous examples, and demonstrations to guide you towards your particular goals for your work. Discussions and critiques will keep the emphasis on your artistic concerns, allowing plenty of working time and individualized instruction.
