Summer Workshop with Lana Ballot: Painting Seascapes with Pastels


Working in our north light painting studios, this workshop will focus on effective techniques for painting seascapes with pastels. Special attention will be given to using color and value to create strong dynamic compositions.
We’ll discuss and practice the specifics of working with color in pastels in general and practice that in seascape painting exercises. 
We’ll discuss use of different underpainting techniques to help establish the structure of the painting and create color depth and texture.
Beginning students will get an introduction to the pastel medium and seascape genre. Intermediate students will have deeper understanding of color and composition and apply it to the seascape.
