About This Class

In this class we will be painting a beautiful seascape in soft pastels. My goal when creating this mini-course was to introduce you to sanded surface and to show you how beautiful pastel marks can be. 

If you haven't seen my Pastels for beginners class then I suggest you start from that and continue with this workshop as a follow up. In the beinner's class I talk about soft pastel techniques and we will also go through the types of soft pastels out there.This way it will be easier for you to dive into the work straight on.

I am in love with seascapes and painting waves is one of my favourite things to do. In this class I will show you what colors to use when painting different planes of the seascape, how to create marks and how to add depth to your work.

By the end of this mini-course you will have a beautiful painting to hang on the wall or to gift to someone special.
