EXPERIMENTING WITH COLOR AND OIL PASTELS

Color OP Workshop

Color is the life’s breath of two dimensional works, and its history is complex and luscious. From the red luminescence of the ancients to the “wine dark sea” of Homer, the versatility of a single hue is unlimited. In this workshop we will explore the expressive and compositional possibilities of hue through the medium of oil pastel.

Diverse basic oil pastel techniques will be covered as a means to experiment in color, and content will be applicable to all other mediums and subjects. Explorations in hue will include how to use color to create successful compositions, emphasize depth in space, and express emotion. Both beginner and experienced artists are welcome.
