Unison Colour and Associate Artist, Nina Squire, are excited to announce the next 5 Day Pastel Challenge starting 9am (UK time) Monday 1st February, running for 5 consecutive days.

Over the course of the 5 days Nina will challenge you to create ‘Old Harry’- a mixed landscape of skies, sea and beach with the iconic Dorset landmark as the main focal point – by offering tips and guidance through a combination of videos and detailed worksheets each day.

There will be a supported Live online Q&A session with Nina each evening at 7pm.

  1. This was such a great course. A fantastically well organized and well thought out five day challenge. Nina Squire is an excellent tutor and I love that Unison offer these chances to learn new techniques and be part of such a positive community. A big thanks to Helen and Oliver for their nonstop help above and beyond with support and tech help throughout the five days. Please bring us more!

  2. I really enjoyed this 5 day challenge. I learnt so much and it gave me more confidence to try developing my own style. This challenge also gave me an opportunity to explore the quality of Unison soft pastels. I have used many different types of pastel and finally I have found one that works for me. I will be looking for more challenges and building my collection of colours. Thank you to the team at Unison for organising this. I hope it is something you develop and continue.

Discovering Reflected Color

When asked to identify the color of a shadow, it is common to respond that it would be a darker color of whatever is in shadow.  A shadow of a tree on green grass would be a darker green.  A shadow of the same tree on dirt would be a darker brown.

Garden of Colour and Flight

On two sides looking out the windows is the woods, the view begins not four foot off the sidewalls where trees and open forest floor slope up and gently away. When the spring rain comes, water gathers in the high places and forms water falling streams that run toward and alongside the studio heading toward gathering ponds on the lower side.
