Painting with Watercolor and Oil Pastel  The class will be held in a studio setting and will focus on fundamental skills, such as observation, perspective, scale, and techniques. Sketching will be an integral part of the exercise. Oil pastels provide a versatile medium for painting with bright colors. They also allow ‘scratching’ with a sharp object to provide interesting effects. Various subjects, including still-life, floral, and portrait will be included in the exercises. This will be an eight-week session, and success with watercolor and oil pastels, considered difficult mediums, will be all but guaranteed.
