Join professional artist Les Darlow for this informative, Special Arty Class that will walk you through interpreting a photograph, using pastel. Filmed live on 17th December 2020.
Les will be walking you through "Interpreting a photograph", altering values and colour temperatures to create Depth, recession and colour harmony. He never copies Photographs but uses them for inspiration to create a painting based on Light, Energy and Movement. You will simplify and re-arrange the composition below to make it work much better.
