Wednesday Afternoon Class at the Oatlands Plantation
Paint with Pastels at the Oatlands!

Whether you're totally new to the wonderful medium of soft pastels, or you've been using them for years, you will love painting with them in the beautiful greenhouse at the Oatlands plantation in Leesburg!

Surrounded by sunshine and tropical plants, we will study a different technique and/or subject matter each week. We'll paint seascapes, landscapes, birds, animals, and still life. We'll explore different types of underpaintings, blending and layering techniques. I'll also cover things like framing, studio safety, storage, etc.

Once you're registered I'll send you a supply list, but you can take a look at the 7-minute video under "Classes" which shows you what you'll need. The set of pastels I mention in the video doesn't seem to be widely available, but there are alternatives. If you have any questions about this, please contact me.

There will be easels, tables, and dropcloths provided.
