    In this lesson, instructor George Pratt will lecture on the importance of silhouette and visual landmarks in art-making. You will learn to focus on the design and the arrangements of information while composing any artwork. George will teach you the idea of shape welding. Then, you will be introduced to the materials needed for pastel drawing.

    This lesson belongs to the course Pastel Figure Drawing. In this 5-week course, George Pratt will teach you how to draw the figure with pastels. You will be introduced to the importance of silhouette and visual landmarks while looking at examples of pastel artworks by the instructor. George will show you his unique approach to gesture drawing. You will learn how to capture the spirit of the poses using light, dark, and colored pastels on toned papers. After this course, you will be able to create drawings with only big shapes yet still carry excellent rhythms and arrangements.

    Throughout this course, you’ll have access to the NMA community for feedback and critiques to improve your work as you progress.

    I wish it was easier to get NuPastel and newsprint paper here in Italy 🙁 really no luck with that, or prohibitive shipping costs.

    In Europe there are reasonable alternatives to NuPastel – KOH-I-NOOR  TOISON D’OR square sticks
