I Will be attending a Pastel Workshop!

For a very long time I have wanted to learn how to do Pastels. I was so excited when I saw that Lesley Harrison, not only a wonderful Pastel artist but, her subject of choice is Animals/Wildlife, is doing a workshop in my area. I just can't wait to attend this workshop. The workshop is being held in Placerville, CA in July.

Here is the Workshop description: Lesley Harrison is well known for her beautiful and sensitive paintings of horses and other animals. This workshop is specifically for those who wish to explore and learn how to use soft pastels as a full painting medium. Three full days of class time with Lesley is an opportunity you don't want to miss. Lesley will begin with a demonstration and then there will be plenty of time for people to paint and have individual attention.

Here is Lesley's webpage: She is an excellent artist, I just can't wait!! I'll be sure to keep you posted about the workshop when I attend.


  1. Hi Gemma, I am delighted to have found your blog. I love your work! I too love pastel and I look forward to reading about your experience in the workshop.

  2. Hi Teresa! Thank you very much! I have never tried Pastel but have always wanted to. I can't wait to give it a try.

  3. Gemma:
    Enjoy the workshop! I want to hear your reaction to working with pastels. I found your blog from a google alert I have in place for "pastel artist".
