This module is designed for students with previous experience of working with pastels. The subject for the folio will focus on portraiture and the human figure, exploring how artists of the past have developed this theme, and how examples can be translated into contemporary practise. The use of pastels will be fully explored and developed, including a fuller understanding of how tone, colour and the composition of an image can be analysed in order to improve results. Themes may include in the garden, the end of the meal, the dance and you will study the context, culture and history of the double portrait. The cost of a life model is incorporated in the course fee.
