Pastel seascapes

At the Friday morning session many members of the Halifax Art Society watched Matthew Evans produce three pastel seascapes with detailed and funny comments.

We learned that paper has to have sufficient ‘tooth’ to take the pastel. Watercolour paper will work, but different grades and colours of abrasive paper will produce more vibrant colours.You can even use a brush with a bit of water to highlight some areas.

On Friday 6th September, from 10:30 to 1 pm, the topic will be ‘Bees, butterflies and bugs’, when Lynda Thomas will lead a lino printing session.
