Class #10

The Art of Landscape in Pastel

Beki Borman

July 28 & 29 | 9 - 4

Learn pastel drawing while focusing on landscape as subject matter. Beki will cover materials, tools, and techniques to layer and blend pastels to achieve gradation, depth, and atmosphere. Color discussions and demos will teach you how to layer color for desired results. We will start with a few exercises to develop concepts and then we will move on to completed drawings. This class is open to all levels of experience. A supply list will be sent and is available online at www.theclearing.org.

Beki Borman was born and raised in the Milwaukee area of Wisconsin. She attended the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design where she received her BFA in painting in 2004. Since graduating, Beki has exhibited both locally and nationally. Beki’s current paintings are done primarily with a palette knife. These “Chromascapes” focus on color relationships within the subject of landscape. Some of Beki’s influences include Vincent Van Gogh, Wolf Kahn, and Wayne Thiebaud. She currently works out of her studio in the Waukesha Springs Gallery/Studios. Visit by appointment only.
