Subject: You’re free to choose the subject you want to paint (wildlife, still life, landscape, portrait) and you will be guided throughout the process to achieve a realistic artwork.

Materials: Pastels are one of the great mediums used by the old masters and ideal not only to understand the visual art principles and translate them into other mediums such as oil painting but also one of the best mediums to achieve vibrant, realistic artworks.

If this is your first experience with pastels, don’t worry, with the essential materials for this course you will be able to achieve a realistic artwork within any subject matter.

If you have any question or doubt if this course is suitable for you, about materials or other questions, feel free to contact the teacher and he’ll answer any questions you may have.
