2 day workshop with Jacob Aguiar

The Pastel Society of Cape Cod is pleased to announce our upcoming Master Workshops in June, 2017:

"From Concept to Completion: Developing a Successful Landscape Painting from Studies and Photo Reference"

In this two-day workshop, Jacob will lead participants in exercises both outside and in- side the studio. Outside, Jacob’s exercises will help you to effectively paint a scene en plein air focusing on composition, light, color harmony, and overall concept. Inside the studio, Jacob will show you how to work from a field study and photo references to produce a successful painting with an emphasis on concept and the overall intention of the painting. Finally, Jacob will discuss how to critique one’s own work so that future paintings more closely convey the original concept and intention. Jacob will do daily demos, and offer ample assistance at the easel in a friendly, fun environment. This workshop is appropriate for the absolute beginner or the more experienced pastelist looking to reinvigorate their work.

Jacob is a very gifted artist and excellent instructor. More information about him and images of his work may be viewed on his website:
