Easy Exercise

6 Sep


I’ve been running some art sessions locally, developing simple exercises to introduce techniques to people who maybe don’t have much confidence in their abilities at first. I wanted to do something that uses pastels and text so, working on black paper, I encouraged people to make a few simple marks with soft pastels turned on their sides and then write a single word repetitively across the background to create a dynamic texture. Very simple but quite effective, I think, and easily accessible.



A lot of my artwork is available on my Artfinder gallery.  If you’d like to have a look, please click on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page.
