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.

The Meadow Beyond, pastel, 12 x 9
In my pastel classes this week, we're working from black and white photos for one more week. Students seem to like these exercises. They get to have fun with color rather than agonize over matching it, and achieving correct values is made much easier! This is my demo from this morning's class.
