Demonstration – The Golf Course
The Golf Course was inspired by the beautiful snow we had in 2010. Believe it or not, Blackpool actually got some! So I spent as much time as possible sketching, painting and taking photos for future work – and, of course, just enjoying being out in it.
When painting with pastel, I mainly use the side of the stick, especially for those larger areas. I suggest therefore that you rip off the wrappers and start to block in simple directional shapes. As always, try to keep it simple. Have fun playing with colour and light, and shake off the stress that preciseness can produce. Let go, be expressive and creative, and concentrate on the main elements of painting.
