Greg Hansell – Pastel Workshop
Sunday, 2nd May 2021 

 

The Macquarie Towns Arts Society has a workshop with Greg Hansell on 2nd May for Pastel, 10am – 4pm.

Book in to learn from Greg’s wonderful skills with Pastels. His own hand made pastels will feature in this workshop.

Greg’s broad experience over many years always brings much insight and expertise in relation to composition, perspective and the use of the pastel medium.

In the morning Greg plans for the group to do a still life inside the Stan Steven’s studio to get started, and then weather permitting, in the afternoon, go outside the Deerubbin center into the garden and do some Plein Air.

About Greg Hansell:

Greg Hansell was born in Goulburn, NSW, and now lives on the historic Peninsula area of Windsor. Many of the sites he has painted are within walking distance from his studio overlooking the Hawkesbury River.

Greg has been a full-time artist since 1980 in the traditionalist or realist school of Australian painting. His medium is pastel and he uses a combination of handmade earth pastels and Schmincke pastels.

His Earth Pastels are hand made only from rocks and clays with no commercial pigment, binder or additive used in their manufacture. Their permanence has been tested to the ultimate rating.

Hansell is a fellow of the Royal Art Society of New South Wales and his paintings are represented in corporate and academic collections.
