Pan Pastels enable you to draw and paint at the same time. Working with soft tools, and
starting with a limited palette of colours, they are great for "mass" drawing (i.e. looking at
value shapes rather than contour lines) and are really valuable for both quick sketching from
figures or faces, while having control when starting to finesse your picture. In this workshop
with renowned artist Malcolm Cudmore, you’ll learn techniques for rapid "mass" drawings as
well as expanding the palette to create nuanced and expressive portraits. Through exploring
their high pigment strength, you’ll see how they can be used on a very wide range of
supports with much thinner layers - resulting in so much less dust than any other pastel
media - without any loss of colour and vibrancy. You’ll be concentrating on figures and faces
in this workshop. The workshop will be suitable for beginners and improvers as well as those
with previous portrait/figure painting experience.
