I no longer post to my blog, but it contains several years worth of short articles I've written regarding various painting tips, thoughts, and inspiration for pastelists and oil painters. I began the blog in 2011 simply as a resource for students I taught at my studio at the time. I stopped posting in 2018, but even though I've grown in my artistic journey since then, much of what I've shared here is still relevant, and therefore I've kept it visible for anyone who cares to skim though it.

Rum River Glow, pastel, 12 x 16
Last week in my pastel class, I had students do color studies of this scene, varying the degree of warms and cools in each study. This week we chose the version we liked and painted it larger. This is my demo from this morning's class. If you saw my last post, I also squeezed in an oil version of this same scene. A couple of posts ago, I showed two of my color studies from last week, one of which I referenced for this finished painting.
