Learn how to create a portrait study with a believable likeness using the beautiful medium of pastel

which is ideal for capturing the soft bloom of skin tones. Janet will show you the basics of

portraiture- composition, drawing, tone, colour and technique. Working from life to create a

portrait, Janet will demonstrate a pastel portrait during the first session which you can follow along

with step by step on your own artwork. She will guide you through this challenging subject to

create a finished portrait. The second session will continue the pose so that more finish can be

achieved or a fresh start from a different angle can be worked on. Create in soft pastel using a

limited palette or full colour. Book for one or both sessions; Saturday, September 7 & 8, 10 am -
