Pastels with Judith Hoste
For Week 1 the photo of the bush is just an example of the style of lesson we will be working on.
The scene we will be doing will have light coming through the centre of the trees, connecting to a grass tree in the foreground. By using the green paper, we can leave areas of the paper as part of the bush.
For Week 2 the scene changes to have the ‘Centre of Light’ reflecting on the water, which makes the sparkle. The blue paper is used for this lesson.
I will have reference material for everyone to work from, plus you will be following my teaching as I take you in stages through each scene.
Paper Mi Tientes ‘Tex’ A3 Deep Green and Dark Blue/Indigo $3.20 at Eckersleys.
If you can’t find the ‘Mi Tientes Tex’ paper, any pastel paper will do in those colours.
Colours will work for both days……White….Black…Yellow Ochre + other Yellows.
Blues…Greens…Browns…Burnt Sienna & Burnt Umber…Mauves/Purples…Pink
Try to have ‘SOFT’ pastels for the main part of the lessons and some hard ones to use for detail and thin line work.
Bring along what you have as your pastel stock.
Tissues and Wet Wipes
Board to attach paper, can tape to board or bring bull dog clips, Newspaper for under paper for padding.
Kneadable Rubber or Blue Tack.
The tissues are for wiping the pastels clean as they get very dirty, transferring colours. The wet wipes are for cleaning your hands while working, as they will get grubby. You can wear gloves if you wish.
