About the Instructor: Lucy works primarily in soft pastels. “I adore the medium - the feel, the luscious colours. I strive with every painting to match my vision for the subject, whether it be animals, birds, or landscapes. In my mind’s eye, I want to build an emotional connection with my subject in some way, to give it life. This has developed over time and continues to develop with every painting.”
