This one-day workshop will cover the basics of portrait painting using pastels. We will examine the proportions of the face, use values to create facial contours, and discover how to render your unique characteristics. Although self-examination may not always be comfortable, you will have a fun day and come away with a better understanding of pastels and possibly yourself! Janet’s style is energetic, highly interactive, and individualized to student needs.

Students will need to bring a “selfie” photograph to class. The portrait should show strong contrast and preferably be positioned directly facing the camera.
