Workshop with Glenn Burnabe – The Portrait in Pastel
‘The Nude Figure in Pastel’. There is no substitute for learning to draw and paint people than from a nude figure.” This workshop will cover the fundamentals of understanding how to paint the figure in pastel starting from learning proportions and recognizing certain forms of anatomy. Application of colour as well as understanding light and shadow also become important as we will spend most of the workshop working from a live model. If drawing and painting people is something that you may find enlightening then this is an experience that can’t be passed up!
Model fee will be extra.

Demonstration – From Field Sketches to Paintings with Don Cavin
This demonstration will seek to explain, step by step, my approach to redesigning a painting from both field sketches and photos. With a close systematic re-examination of the function of line, shape and values, the purpose of grey scale value sketches will be emphasized even before the painting is begun and decisions about colour are made. Come prepared to enjoy the process of rethinking a strong dynamo piece of art.
