July 2024 demo: Children in pastels

Tuesday 16th July, 7.30pm, on Zoom and screened at Centre 70

July’s demo on Zoom (viewable at Centre 70 or by link at home) sees artist, Rebecca de Mendonca, create a portrait of children in pastels. Rebecca’s work has become widely known over recent years for its energy, life and movement. Devon-based Rebecca paints horses, people, landscapes and architecture, always seeking out the atmosphere and emotion in her subjects.

She was born near Wolverhampton into a creative family. Her mother was an artist and teacher, her father an architect, her brother a painter.

After a Foundation Course at Wolverhampton University she gained a BA Hons in theatre design at Wimbledon School of Art. Following a career in advertising, she now teaches pastel courses, and demonstrates to art groups around the South West and South of England. Rebecca writes for Leisure  Painter Magazine, for the SAA, and teaches online for ArtTutor.com. She and fellow pastel artist Nel Whatmore founded The New Pastel School in 2013, running courses in Yorkshire, Devon and Italy.
