In this intensive workshop with internationally acclaimed artist, instructor, and author Liz Haywood- Sullivan, we will explore the intricacies of painting water and reflections in pastel. We will use underpainting to assist the development of the layers of transparency found in water. Topics to be covered include depicting reflections, how water behaves when calm and when moving, water in the dramatic seascape, how to use aerial perspective principles in water to create distance, seeing and painting correct values, plus much more. Each day will start with a demonstration and there will be plenty of daily individual instruction at your easel. This is a studio workshop for artists with some pastel experience.
