New work February 2012

A fabulous range of paintings and details form the class, done since last week. The colour palette is very strong across all the work and there is a real a strength in each composition.  Next week we start our major project for this term: a mixed media roof top scene project.

We are back!

The new pastel painting course at LYndhurst Centre, Gateshead is now back and running. Everyone from last time has come back apart from two to whom we send our best wishes for speedy recoveries - we hope to see you both in the summer term. 


We started the course by creating tint charts which in themselves are both beautiful to look at and really useful reference materials. We then moved on to our first new project - how to use tinted highlights in a still-life. This was done at home. Our latest project is how to use a dry ground to block in our designs and focus on our palette. 


Here are some examples from the dry ground:
