Season's change with Robert Dutton
Learn how to simplify the scene and create a view of a coastal farm lane with interest and real presence, using pastels, in this live webinar with Robert Dutton.
Tuesday 23 January 2024 at 2:30pm (GMT)
With a focus on light, dark greens and bright fresh greens; in this webinar you will learn how to simplify the scene and create a view of a coastal farm lane with interest and real presence. With drystone walls, woodland trees, and distant farm buildings as part of the scene, your mark making will be both detailed and dynamic. The contrast between light and dark, rich colours and directness in approach capturing the freshness of spring air along this country coastal lane are sure to inspire!
I recommend using a dark background for support - black is a great idea. Any pastel colour placed on black just glows! The emphasis in this webinar is on negative painting and confidence in application, with sumptuous marks using bright colours and rich darks in a really expressive way.

Following successive shows in London with his work and sell out shows in the North of England, in 2013 Robert took the decision to become a full time artist when his expressive style of painting became popular and in demand.
Since then, his unique style has grown with increasing respect and he has won numerous and continual awards in leading national galleries and open art competitions. His work has been exhibited at ‘The Mall Galleries’ in London with the prestigious ‘Pastel Society’ and the Society of Graphic Fine Art, with whom he is an Associate Artist.
