Oakwell Art Club Demonstration 27th October 2009

Thank you all for making Liz & myself so welcome last night at your Group's meeting. We had a really enjoyable time, 'hope you did too?

As promised, this is the completed Pastel painting, after I have carried out the following adjustments:

I softened the sky slightly by blending the colours with my finger. I decided not to blend the colour completely in order to retain the 'hazy' appearance.

To reduce the 'warmth' of the colour of the beach, I worked back into the area, using two 'blue/grey' pastels

I applied further detailing to the flags, boat & fish boxes.

Finally, I softened the distant landscape & added a few highlights.

If you have any questions, please contact me.

We hope to visit you again soon!

Hi Robert & Liz
I've just been onto 'the gallery' to see the finished result of the pastel painting that you did when you visited Oakwell art group, Birstall the other week. It's first rate! Also, I found your book in the local library and am finding it very informative.
Once again, thanks for a very enjoyable demonstration and keep up the good work.
