Pastel Workshops – Worldwide

2020 –  Les will be Teaching the art of pastel using Unison Pastels and the amazing Pan Pastel, plus Mixed Media sessions using watercolours and Drawing Inks. If you wish to get away from COPYING that photo and develop as a TRUE ARTIST, then Attending a workshop with Les Darlow, you will learn simple techniques to create wonderful atmospheric skies, stunning water reflections and add drama and mood to your paintings, based on light, energy and movement. He will cover pastel techniques, composition, tonal values and balance plus underpainting techniques. He encourages a creative and loose approach and specialises in Impressionism. Everyone produces finished paintings to take home on the day. To reserve your place on a workshop, please call me on 07900 576 840, or drop me an email at lesdarlow@sky.com
