Pastel Seascape Workshop And Half Day Demonstration 15th & 16th June

After a successful River of Art which showcased the diverse talents of so many in the Eurobodalla district, it also germinated a seed for many in wishing to learn how to paint. The South Coast Pastel Society is offering two wonderful opportunities in pastel painting, which will be held at the Batemans Bay Surf Lifesaving Club, George Bass Drive, Malua Bay.

The first is a one day Seascape workshop for artists with a medium knowledge of pastels and which will be held on Saturday 15th June. In this workshop Tricia will lead you through analysing wave movement, water effects, coastlines , wet sand, cresting waves and luminescence. Cost of the one day workshop is $80 members and $90 non members with only 2 places left bookings and registration is essential.

Still not sure but curious, or simply interested in how a master pastellist applies her talents to create an award winning piece, then come along and watch Tricia in action in this Sunday half day demonstration which commences at 9.30am sharp and concludes at 12 noon.

For bookings to either please contact Lyn Woolridge at of phone 0448496998.

Sydney based Tricia Taylor’s art career spans over a few decades and in 2011 she was awarded Master Pastellist status by the Pastel Society of Australia. Her awards are numerous and prestigious and she may be remember here for her winning pastel art piece at the Sth Coast Pastel Society’s 3rd Annual National Pastel Competition. She is firstly a seascape artist who loves to paint plein air, although proficient in landscape she conducts workshops all over Australia and her work has been featured in many prominent gallery or exhibition. She has had several articles published in the Australian Artist Magazine, Art Edit and Draw Magazine UK. She quotes that “the beauty and serenity of creation is what draws me to paint”.
