On Saturday, 8th October, 10 members went to Clare Money's pastel workshop. In her words Clare works 'big and messy' , scrubbing the pastel into big sheets of watercolour paper for the middle ground, then drawing in charcoal and erasing out the lights. Clare works quickly after that, adjusting the colours to give a harmonious whole. After a demo members started their own picture, with Clare giving constructive advice to individuals.
Everyone found the workshop very enjoyable and useful, pushing us away from over detailed pictures but as she had warned us, we all ended up with a lot of pastel on us as well as the picture.
We also admired Clare's wonderful sea and sky pictures in her book 'Coast'.
