SAA Live - Alison C Board Demonstration - Sunflower in Pastel

Join the ever talented Alison C Board this morning as she takes you through painting this cheerful sunflower in pastels.

Along the way, Alison will offer you hints and tips to help you get the most of your own pastel paintings too.

Alison very kindly recorded this demonstration for us, and she will be available in the live chat this morning to answer any questions you may have.

Have you also seen our Sunflower project?  We’re aiming to encourage people – artists and non-artists alike – to draw or paint a sunflower in memoriam of friends and family lost during this terrible Covid-19 pandemic, in order to create a lasting memorial website. This will give people the opportunity to upload their artwork, creating a gallery of creations to share with the world, and ensure that every life lost during the crisis was remembered and treasured.  We are aiming to launch the site in late August but we’re looking for your help to make this happen, find out more information on our fundraising page.
