Pastel Workshops – Worldwide

NEW FOR 2019 –  Les will be Teaching the art of pastel and the amazing Pan Pastel, plus Mixed Media sessions using watercolours, Inktense and Calligraphy Inks. 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 free approach and specialises in Impressionism. Everyone produces finished paintings to take home on the day. In the UK the cost is £47 and most will include all the materials needed for the workshop  (some paper charges may be extra) (some venues include a light lunch, please check). To reserve your place on a workshop, please call me on 07900 576 840, or drop me an email at lesdarlow@sky.com
