Bio: Suzanne Godbout has been a pastellist since 1995, after 30 years of drawing in graphite, and an introduction to colour via oil paint. Suzanne is a professional artist who conducts conferences, demonstrations and workshops to further the medium. Her works have been exhibited in Canada, and at Giverny in France. She prefers to work directly from the subject, be it still life or landscape. Suzanne was President of the Pastel Society of Eastern Canada from 2005 to 2011, she has attended internships and demonstrations with pastel masters in Quebec and the United States and is recognised as a role model in the medium. With 40 years of teaching experience, she has developed effective teaching tools and gained an enviable reputation for her ability to pass on her knowledge.
Subjects : Still Life; Landscape
Style: Representational. Suzanne credits her musical discipline with informing her painting practice: My formal education in music composition has guided me in the apprenticeship of this artistic discipline - form, rhythm, key, modulation, nuance, phrasing, legato, staccato, crescendo … and I keep on learning every day.

Blog/Demo: There is a very useful pdf on painting metal in pastel, originally published in Pratique des Arts, that may be downloaded from Suzanne’s blog. The article is in Fench, but there is a colour chart of the pastels she uses for silver, pewter, steel, and galvanised metal, that can be adapted by anyone. http://www.suzannegodbout.com/blog
