My new medium


Soft Pastels

I can't tell you how much fun I am having with soft pastels. I am taking an online workshop and thank God there are videos. The woman teaching the workshop is Marla Bagetta from Oregon. She has a ton of free videos with everything you would ever care or need to know about pastels. I have some cheap pastels and that box I posted about a few years ago that I bought at an artists yard sale.


Here is the reference photo for my first pastel study (not a finished piece but more a sketch)







I ordered good pastels and they will be here Thursday. Hopefully they will give me a leg up (smile).

    1. I was able to afford the 26 week class which is like baby steps. I put ego aside and started as if I knew nothing. Willingness, Honesty and Open mindedness

  2. Same vibrant colors as in a lot of your other mediums!!! One thing I've noticed about you is you dive into all of your explorations with "your ego aside" and with willingness and open mindeness.
