Goofy Black Puppy in Pastels

  • 14 Scholz Ave, Nuriootpa SA 5355, Australia

Event description

In this three-hour session, we shall draw a black puppy in glorious colour. Light from the sun and light reflected from surrounding objects bounces on the fur of this playful puppy, Bonnie (the artist’s own), to make her come alive on paper. In this small group workshop, we will go over how to draw up using a grid, using a notan to identify values, and which pastels to use on which value areas. Quality pastels and paper are provided.

About the artist

Susan Penfold is an award-winning artist who has recently moved to Adelaide. She was instantly taken by the vibrancy of colour and tactile nature of pastels when she started her artistic journey and looks forward to passing on her love of this artistic form to others.

About the artist

Alan Louis Ramachandran, who migrated to Adelaide in 2007, has achieved notable success as a full-time artist, with a particular focus on watercolour as his chosen medium. His experience as an immigrant in this country has provided him with a unique perspective on the interplay between cultural and environmental factors, which, in turn, have greatly influenced his artistic choices regarding colour, texture, and composition. This distinctive viewpoint has proven invaluable in shaping his transformative role as an art educator and tutor. With a deep understanding of the diverse learning needs of others, he excels in bringing individuals together to develop their self-expression skills through art creation, both in formal and informal settings.
Alan’s contributions to the local art scene are significant, with a substantial body of work, including ten solo exhibitions and ten group exhibitions. He has also actively participated and organised in various competitive forums catering to the local artistic community. His passion for the fluid and expressive nature of the watercolour medium is evident in his work, as he skillfully applies washes to paper to create atmospheric moods within his paintings.
