Learn to create luminosity in pastel painting. In a step-by-step method, Dina shares her process to achieving brilliance in value and color by beginning her images with an effective underpainting technique. Each day starts with a demo, and is followed by a guided demo of a class provided photo reference. Informational handouts and individual instruction also will be given to each student to develop landscapes from their own photographic images.
