Light reveals the beauty of the world: the rich subtleties of light is a limitless inspiration for artists. This class will focus on the illusion of value, color and form that is determined by the effects of light. Among other techniques, the student will experiment with colored grounds to achieve a more beautiful pastel painting. For those interested, Katie will cover the steps to creating a nocturne.
