Here is Jeff’s description of this workshop:

Please join me for this fun, one-day workshop as we thoroughly explore and examine the pastel process from early concept to finished painting, where you will learn firsthand how to execute simple practices and push the limits with advanced techniques.

Focus will be on the dynamic landscape and how to express yourself through your work by ‘thinking’ and creating dramatic compositions, adding intense value and lighting techniques and utilizing head turning color palettes. Leave your comfort zone and learn how to begin with an effective underpainting and layer building for finishing touches. We will even review framing and supplies, and current marketing practices to give you and your work the love it
