PASA - Pastel Artists of South Australia

Member's News

Dear PASA Members

Over many years I’ve attempted to capture my daughter in a series of quick studies. I’m not known for portraiture but like most subjects, I don’t mind having a go!

Here are a couple of studies I’ve tried. One rapidly  snatched using wet-in-wet watercolour and much later, a pastel version.  

On Saturday August 13 join us at PASA for an afternoon where we attempt portrait studies from a live sitter: with her lovely mane of red hair, my daughter has agreed to sit for us.

Artists in the room will support novice pastellists and first time portrait painters with suggestions as we work together. You may like to attempt a series of small studies or try life drawing if that is your preference.

Work along side other artists and learn from each other. Visitors welcome and we have visitor pastel kits available to borrow for the day, upon request.

Bring your travel pastel kit and paper.

Bring your own refreshments. There will be a door prize and raffle as usual.
