Large Scale Animals in Pastel (colour) FEB with Jess Le Clerc

Learn to create large scale animal portraits using colour (Pastel) with rising Sunshine Coast artist Jess Le Clerc. You will be learning to see colour intuitively rather than learning the perfect 'mix'. Combine this workshop with the Saturday charcoal workshop to get the best out of the weekend's lessons.

In this workshop we’ll explore how to see colour intuitively rather than learning how to mix the perfect colour. We’ll be building texture and effects for focus and how to find a likeness.

I will complete a step by step animal study, students will follow along each step and be guided as they complete a colour study.

These workshops are very helpful when paired with the Saturday charcoal workshop so that both tone and colour can work together.

I'm sitting here trying to think what you'd like to know about me, what type of introduction I make ...

I'm just a girl from a dairy farming family, I am totally obsessed with drawing, painting and art. Mainly because it soothes and stills all the thoughts that race and roam around inside this brain of mine. I see beauty and light and colour everywhere.

I married my childhood best friend and it just so happens he is the greatest human I know. He keeps all of us loved and looked after, he even manages all my art and my ideas.

We have four kids. They're cute in the photo but don't be deceived, they are all so alive and expressive and naughty and kind and arrrgggghhhhh!

I have no parenting advice but I do love them more than I knew I could. I think if you love your kids really well that't the best example for them and others.

I struggle with my art because all I want to do is paint and draw living things. People. Animals. Plants. Those kind of things. Everyday kind of people like you and me, with our love, resilience, laughter and hope. But everyday kind of people also have some mess, pain, hurt and scars. You can't have one without the other.

One day I dream of voicing in an image, what is burning inside of every person in way that helps them have courage and vision for their whole life. That's the direction I want to head in.

I am so honoured that you'd find my work interesting enough to follow along on the journey.

I would like to write a little more so if you would like to join in, just enter your email address at the bottom of the page.

Thanks for pouring courage on my ideas. We were created to create!
