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.

Just Me and the Trees, pastel, 9 x 12
Round two of this week's demos. Slightly cooler color palette from yesterday's demo of the same subject, using some splashes of turquoise in this one. I thought yesterday's was a bit stiff looking, so I tried to soften the tree mass some more on this one.
