In the following step by step pastel drawing demonstration, Margaret Evans demonstrates, in easy to follow steps, how to draw flowers. This is more of an impressionist style drawing than anything else, as Margaret is not interested in capturing every detail. Just a very colorful and loose impression of her subject.
She uses a bouquet of flowers for her subject. Her goal is to create a colorful and fleeting impression of the flowers instead of an accurate reproduction. The results are something quite beautiful and well worth watching. This is a 3 part pastel drawing demo, so you will need to set apart some time to finish watching these videos. I do hope you enjoy and learn a great deal about still life drawing using pastels.
