THOMAS LEIGHTON - PASTEL PAINTING

     Mr Leighton taught portraiture, figure drawing and painting and still-life. His  method of teaching was reminiscent of the studio workshops of the past. A beginning student would work several years in charcoal, starting with line drawings and working up to full toned drawings. Then would come painting in umber and white paint to establish tone and familiarity with paint. Finally the student would progress to full color oil paint or pastel.
