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.

Among the Birch Trees, pastel, 12 x 9
This was my paint-along demo for a private class this morning. As with my classes earlier in the week, we worked from a black and white photo, trying to keep the palette limited and color harmonized. I've painted this scene before and was glad to paint it again, since the last time I visited this location, I noticed these trees were gone. :-(
