Robert will teach you how to combine acrylic inks and soft pastel in an expressive way to loosen up your technique, let your ideas flow and relate to your subject in a contemporary way, much more than simply depicting it.


The end result will combine washes of beautiful free flowing drawn and painted base colours with layers of pastels on top to give real depth and surface interest to your painting. Using the tooth of the paper to great effect, eye catching expressive textures will really stand out, adding another exciting dimension to your painting.
