Pastel is a medium that borders the line between painting and drawing. The finished pieces look just as luscious and radiant as paintings,  the process to create them resembles drawing more than painting. Soft pastels can create such flowing and soft gradients like no other drawing or painting medium. Soft pastels are a very spontaneous process and the colour applied can be easily blended. Rooftop has arranged a Soft Pastel Beginners Workshop with Darshita.

About The Artist

Darshita is a lecturer, lawyer by profession and artist by passion. She is a self-taught artist and is now settled in Bangalore. She has conducted offline and online art workshops.

The Workshop Began

Darshita thanked for the introduction and greeted all the participants. She first started sketching two lamps and coloured them using light brown pastel colour along with dark brown colour. Darshita continued colouring the sky with blue colour along with shades of blue colour, pink colour making small flowers and leaves with dark green colour. She concluded the soft pastel painting by outlining the lamp posts using a black outliner as it looked colourful and visually soothing.

Towards The End Of The Workshop

Darhita beautifully created Soft Pastel paintings. All the attendees enjoyed creating their paintings. She was delighted to see all the co-created art forms as she appreciated their colourful pastel paintings, showing all her colourful pastel colour paintings it was bright, colourful and aesthetic. The host thanked Darshita for teaching this artistic and colourful art form.

The attendees were from different parts of the country. They also belonged to different age groups but their love for art brought them together on a single platform. Rooftop, as always, was successful in connecting artists and curating a magical and positive vibe together.
