Figure Workshop in Pastel with Michele

Posted by gandrade

Figurative Workshop in Pastel w. Michele Poirier-Mozzone

Add excitement to your pastel paintings with a bold under painti ng and confident marks. We will use photo references as a jumping off point to achieve a figurative painting with exciting color, gestural mark making and pleasing composition. Whether you choose figures in groups or alone, outdoors or interior-the possibilities are endless. Whether you are a novice or experienced figure painter, everyone is welcome. Under paining may be done with alcohol, watercolor, or oil wash-whichever you feel most comfortable with. As we examine how beautifully the under painting can complement the pastel, we will work on achieving interesting and expressive marks and interpretive color.

Jim McGaw

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
