Instructor: Bonnie Zahn Griffith
Do you want to
build on or learn the basics of painting a landscape with pastels? This is your chance! Join Bonnie Zahn Griffith for a Zoom class on the art of pastel painting! Following a brief introduction in composition and design elements, we will paint together to create the enclosed painting. This “paint-along” will give participants the systematic approach to doing a studio painting based on a photo. In this case Bonnie will complete the painting again, along with participants, of this road and old abandoned shed along the river (see image below). You will learn techniques for pastel application and building depth and interest in your work. Join the Zoom class and prepare to have some fun creating a fun landscape painting!
