Some call it painting, others call it drawing, whichever one it is, we’re going to explore the World of Soft Pastel together in this Class. To do so, we’re going to draw the beautiful Middle Spotter Woodpecker together.Soft Pastels are one of my favorite art mediums to work with. They’re a joy to use and somehow the whole process is very relaxing and fun to do. The drawing, coloring and blending are always having a very positive effect on my state of mind.Soft Pastel, isn’t that hard to get into? No, not really. Do I need a lot of technique for it? Not really. We’re going to approach this medium in a slightly different way. Instead of me explaining all kinds of techniques and basics, we’re just going to pick up the Soft Pastel and get going. Along the way, I will show you the Techniques and Skills you need to be succesful with this medium. Best of all… you will end up with a beautiful drawing (or painting, which ever you prefer) made with Soft Pastel and (optional) Pastel Pencils.Anyone can join in, with or without experience in drawing, soft pastels or even art. My clear instructions will guide you step-by-step through the whole process.For this Workshop I’ve included a Workbook. The Workbook contains all of the references you need for this Class.
