Pastel Masterclass with Judy Drew

OVERVIEW

I am delighted to host a third pastel weekend workshop in Sydney with Melbourne based artist Judy Drew, one of Australia’s finest pastel artists.


ABOUT JUDY DREW

After studying graphic art in Melbourne, Judy Drew moved to Bougainville Island for nine years. Her oil paintings, pastels and watercolours of the local people established her reputation as a fine artist. Upon returning to Australia and for the past thirty years she has produced both figurative and still life works.

Influence of Japanese art on the post impressionists has lead to a gradual change in her style; using simplified colour and shape to create a more contemporary edge. Judy’s work glows with an intensity of colour rarely seen in pastels. Represented by Melbourne Fine Art Gallery her work is in high demand by investors, galleries and private collections worldwide.

Dates: Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th September 2017

LIFE MODEL DEMONSTRATION AND WORKSHOP

Working in charcoal, with a life model and a freer, more unrestrained technique Judy will demonstrate and discuss how to develop a strong sense of observation.

1.15pm – 2.00pm:  Lunch
2.00pm – 5.00pm:  Pastel life model demonstration and study

Working in pastel, with a life model Judy will demonstrate form and shape through light and shade as well as the subtleties of colour.
