How many photos of different landscapes (sky, fields, oceanview, etc.) do you have on your phone? Different morning dews, magical sunsets, and purple evenings. With this workshop you can bring those skyscape photos to life! Visiting Artist, Beverly West Leach will teach you how to capture light in landscapes using soft pastels. Attendees will also learn color mixing, contrast, creating depth and materials necessary to get started in soft pastels.
