Elena Peres – Pastel still Life

Elena Peres created these three pastel paintings for an assignment on the Pastel Painting Online Art Course we run which is a home study course.

The first piece of artwork which Elena created below of the single apple is a practice study which allowed Elena to understand the shape and form of the apple, the direction of light, how to create shine and shadow using her chosen colours.

From here she then created two final pieces of artwork of apples in a bowl. We are very impressed with Elena’s use of colour and her beautiful style of drawing. The compositions of both pieces are excellent.

We hope that showing Elena’s artwork today helps inspire our students and encourages them to pick up their pastels. We would love to what our students can achieve drawing and painting objects around them in their home, just like Elena has.
