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.

Instructor: Michele Poirier-Mozzzone is a signature Member of the Pastel society of America (PSA) and holds a Master Circle designation with the International Association of Pastel Societies (IAPS/MC). she is also a Signature Member of the Connecticut Pastel Society and the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod. to see her work go to
