Join Hood River artist, Karen Watson, for a fun weekend “playing” with pastels. This workshop, with is open to any level, will begin with the fundamentals of pastel materials and technique. Once the basics are covered we will explore composition, color and most importantly value, the key to a successful painting. Karen works with a variety of soft pastels on toned sandpaper in both her studio and plein air. Favoring loose and bold application of pastel strokes and color she creates fresh and exciting pieces. The tooth of the paper allows for several applications of pastel lending the work “painterly” feeling.
Karen Watson has received numerous awards for her dynamic pastel paintings and has featured in the pastel Journal and Style Magazine. Her work is featured in both private and public collections through out the nation. “ I love working in pastel due to the spontaneity of the medium and enjoy sharing the experience with others.
