Jennifer Johnson

9th October 2021

Our demonstration this month was a portrait in pastels.  Jennifer used one of her own photos of a lovely lady, taken whilst on holiday.

She started by outlining the shape of the head and features of the face then building up the face with blocks of colour using the side of the pastel. The character gradually emerged.



Lines and wrinkles were created using gaps in light areas rather than drawing in dark lines.

It was a lovely portrait in gentle colours reflecting the character in the photograph.
