Colin Ayers – March Hare Pastel Study

£85.00 | 6th March - 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM | Spaces available: 9

All Materials Included

This workshop with Colin is perfect for beginners as well as those with a bit more experience. The day will start with an introduction to different surfaces (papers and velour) and different techniques for applying and blending pastels. You will then learn how to transfer an image onto velour pastel paper. Using soft pastels to create a colourful base to your picture, blend them together to form a smooth layer. Finer details are added with pastel pencils to complete a pastel painting to be proud of. There will be advice on how to protect your work and the best way to mount and frame it

Includes homemade lunch and refreshments 

About the Artist

I am a full time artist and a professional associate of the SAA, which is an organisation for all artists from beginners to professionals.   

Since a child, I have loved art; I was encouraged to do pencil drawing and paint by my family, particularly my paternal grandfather, who taught me various drawing techniques.  

Over the years I have attended various art courses and workshops to improve my painting.  I took early retirement from the NHS during 2013 to pursue my art interests; I have steadily increased my teaching commitments and exhibition work.  I run classes and workshops; also, demonstrations for art clubs.
