“The challenge to represent beauty both intuitively, truthfully and with emotion is my goal as an artist. Each new painting is an adventure, and it’s the excitement of experimentation and discovery that makes me create. I really enjoy sharing the creative process with my students.”

Anne Yang was introduced to the medium of soft pastels in 1998. This led to a life-long love affair with this wonderfully adaptive medium. Anne’s pastel paintings have won awards from the very start of her foray into fine art, and in 2014 Anne was awarded Master Pastellist Status with the Pastel Society of Australia.  Anne relishes the versatility and power of expression of soft pastel in her powerful portrayal of various genre, including the scapes of land, sea and lake; intimate still life and floral, and portraiture.

Creating Depth in the Landscape

Have you ever wondered how to create the illusion of distance and depth in your landscape paintings? I personally love to explore the great outdoors, especially where I can climb up to a wonderful vantage point and breath in the vast expanse and vista of the landscape.


The artist is an illusionist, creating that 3D effect on a 2D surface, to take the viewer far off into the blue! Join with me and we will explore how to venture off into the blue!!

Creating Depth in the Landscape

Student Experience Level: All Students

In this one-day workshop Anne will explain how to create the illusion of depth and aerial perspective in the landscape, and how atmosphere and distance change colour, tone, line and edge of objects in the landscape.


The effects of linear perspective will also be covered. Anne will demonstrate how to divide the landscape into foreground, midground and background, and how to select the pastels to use according to their position in space, and how to modify and mix your pastels on the paper to achieve these results.


This will be a paint-along workshop, where Anne will demonstrate painting a landscape. She will do this in a series of steps for her students to follow along. We will do some colour exercises before working on the painting. Anne will supply a photograph for each student to work from.
