Robert Dutton Pastel Demo 2016

Robert Dutton gave a chalk pastel demonstration to Farsley Art Club. He used Canson Mi-Teintes pastel paper, charcoal and various soft and hard chalk pastels.

2016-05-11 20.12.33

He worked from a photograph of a mill town in a valley. He started by establishing the positions of the elements in the scene using charcoal in loose strokes. He smudged the charcoal in the sky and town area.
