Free Beginner’s Live Demo with Sue Kerrigan-Harris

Free Beginner's Live Demo with Sue Kerrigan-Harris 1

You’ve just got your lovely new set of Unison Soft Pastels for Christmas and you can’t bear to take them out of the box let alone break them – they look so pretty! 

Does this sound like you?

Join Associate Artist Sue Kerrigan-Harris as she gently shows you how to get started with your brand-new set of Unison Colour Soft Pastels in this free tutorial.

Sue will take you through unwrapping your pastels (even if you’re scared to), creating a colour chart and how to use your pastels in lots of different ways including mark making to create different effects, combining them with pastel pencils, water and alcohol and using selected tools.

The Live Demo will be held on Zoom, on Wednesday 12th January at 7pm.

What Are Open Studios & Could You Join In?

For the last 4 years I’ve been taking part in Hampshire Open Studios. It’s a yearly event where Artists from across the County open up their Studio to the public over a period of 10 days.

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.
