Workshops with Claire Money at Deerness Art Group 12 Nov 2017

Claire did a pastel demo using Unison Pastels on bockingford not watercolour paper of a rural scene in North Yorkshire.
 The white paper was edged with masking tape and covered with red pastel and blended into the paper. Part way through the sky Claire added the branches then added the clouds each side branch in the centre- I am not sure if this was the right approach as made this area more prominent rather than sitting back in the distance.
The overall composition remined me photo taken with the maximum field of view making the hills look very small. I would have made the hills larger as they would appear if drawn insitu and moved the recogniseable peak of Roseberry into the focal point. I am not sure of the dark tree shadow in the foreground - too much towards black.
