10 Days Intensive Program on Pastel Portraiture

10 DaysIntensive Program on Pastel Portraiture
Take for 10 days or 5 days!! Different projects each week.

(Bruges, Belgium) This workshop will feature live model, and Cuong will demonstrate his own techniques to draw from life using soft pastels and pastel pencils. Students will learn to use an approach that helps them see the big shapes first, and then go into details towards the end of the session.

The first day of the workshop will be an orientation to all materials involved and a complete demonstration of the process of painting the head from a live model. Students will do some exercises on how to apply pastels on sanded paper to create realistic skin-tones. The remainder of the ten-day workshop will continue with instruction on the proportions of the head from basic line to more advanced anatomical study. From there, we will focus on developing a likeness from the model by learning to interpret what we see–simplifying the features and focusing on basic shapes and forms as described by masses of color, plus light and shadow. Demonstrations and individual attention will be emphasized, enabling each student to produce a finished drawing by workshop completion.

This workshop is designed to create a relaxed, informative, yet focused working environment for all skill levels. The core of the lesson will be based on drawing, values, edges, composition and creating life-like skin tone color. Students will focus on the fundamentals of drawing the human head while developing new skills in pastel.
