Hi and welcome to my mossy branch demonstration. I wanted to create a one hour workshop that would give you the opportunity to explore markings when pastelling trees and greenery with a little bit of whimsy thrown in!
I am traditionally a realism artist but also love whimsical qualities in art.
I have included details and images of the pastels used in the demonstration at the start of the video, which you can pause and replay. I have done this for less focus on colour accuracy and more focus on exploring light, mid and dark tonal values. If it helps before watching, choose 3 browns, 3 greens (a dark, medium and light tone of each colour), a black and very deep blue or purple.
Perhaps throw in a lilac and a very light pink, blue or white and just enjoy !
Please share your work here in the Pastel Academy members Group as I would love to see your own mossy branch!
