Margaret's Blog - Travels with Pastel

Rates & Enrollment

No matter which medium we paint in, we often get bogged down by technique and allow the medium to take over the development of the painting. Margaret is already known for her ‘Unleashing Pastels’ but her philosophy works for any subject and medium you choose. It is a matter of finding the medium that best suits what you want to say in a painting. Margaret will work in pastels, but also bring gouache, watercolor, and her soluble pen & wash for outdoor techniques, so show you how to capture the freedom that comes with expressing your style, whether you paint landscapes, portraits or still life.   Bring any medium you choose, and she will help you enjoy developing your free spirit to inject & reflect into your paintings.

The class will alternate between outdoor days and studio days, allowing plenty of time to develop work individually, and experiment with techniques, new topics, and even mixing media to create something different. All levels, including total beginners are welcome, right through to practicing artists who want to improve, or simply try something different. Margaret's demonstrations will inspire you to push the boundaries, take risks, and bring your own personality into your work.

Margaret teaches you as an individual, so bring your favorite ‘weapons’ of art construction, and enjoy taking risks and pushing boundaries!
