Trevor Harwood Pastel Demonstration

Trevor Harwood gave a very informative and inspiring demonstration of his pastel techniques when he visited the Writtle Art Group on Monday the 30th of September.  Over 50 members where taken through the initial stages of how he would tackle a hedgerow composition and his infectious enthusiasm will no doubt result in many members having a go, or another go, at using this delightful medium.

Trevor has promised to complete the work and we will show it as soon as possible.
