Pastel landscape workshop.

Pastel landscape painting in the Lot, 46 les 28, 29 et 30 Juin.

More and more artists are turning towards plein air painting. The covid epidemic and concerns for the future have perhaps made us increasingly aware of the joy of painting in the landscape.

I am organising a pastel course in June; three days of landscape painting in the countryside around Catus for a limited number of students. My studio and garden will be the base for this exploration of the hills and fields around. A meal is served at midday, giving us a chance to relax and to reflect on our work.

The studio is large, and available to us in case of bad weather.

Open air painting is one of the most enriching occupations, but it needs dedication and confidence. If you are used to working solely from photos, you will soon see the difference. With practise you can learn to produce work which evokes the sentiment and atmosphere you feel when you are physically in front of your subject. In this course we will work towards understanding composition and how to control colour to make harmonious pastel paintings.

The price of this course is 300€ with midday meals included.

Many gites are available in Catus and the surrounding villages.
