Amazing Coastal Sunsets (Online Workshop)

Thu, 4 Mar 2021
10.00am - 4.00pm
Description Long

Join returning award winning artist Catherine Inglis in a full day workshop exploring coastal sunsets.

Attendees will receive a short demonstration from the artist before the practical session illustrating how light falls and reflects on the sea. Pastels can be worked to create amazing results and students will learn how to master the techniques for these critical areas in seascapes.

Tips and tricks will be given throughout to understand the types of pastels to use, importance of using tonal values, colour selection and various pastel techniques to help you produce a fantastic masterpiece in one day.

What you need to bring with you:

  • Soft pastels but not any oil pastels
  • A board to take an A3 size Canson paper at least! Size 18 inches x 24 inches is a good size. White or light coloured paper is not good for pastel use.
  • An easel, table or free standing.
  • An old tea towel for keeping the hands clean
  • Baby wipes.
  • An old oil painting brush and a rubber (to get rid of any mistakes, pastel is very forgiving)
  • A sheet of silver foil
  • A good photo image/field sketch


Cath will have sheets of Canson pastel paper as well as the Sanded paper and unison pastels she uses for you to buy if required, at a very reasonable price.

Due to the implications of Covid-19 this workshop will be staged online. Participants will receive clear information on how to access this workshop in advance.
