117- In the Studio with Tony Allain

I heard Tony Allain was going to be in town, I knew I had to invite him over to my studio for a visit! I’m such a fan and admirer of his vibrant, abbreviated style! He was going to be teaching at the Carrie Moore Studio not far from my studio. I was grateful he agreed to come, knowing that a full day of teaching a workshop can be exhausting even if it’s a good kind of exhausting!

I prepared a few questions that I was curious about, and I asked some of my students to chime and with some questions. When the day arrived, Tony and I sat down for a delightful chat about pastels, being an artist and teaching art!

Tony really needs no introduction as he is very widely acclaimed! He is a regular award winner with his stunning and show stopping work. He lives and works in Scotland, he is an IAPS/Eminent Pastelist, a popular juror, workshop instructor and regular contributor to Artist Magazine and Pastel Journal.
Enjoy the video of our interview/chat! Tony’s enthusiasm and passion for pastels is inspiring and infectious.

Painting Minilessons
with Marla Baggetta

These “mini-lessons” grew out of my blog. I love sharing my experience behind the easel, so these are free. I write a new one every two or three weeks, so please feel free to share with artist friends.

​These lessons are mostly written text with graphics…short but useful tidbits from the foundations of painting that touch on subjects such as aerial perspective, simultaneous contrast or using negative spaces. I guide you through different aspects of painting and art that will get you comfortable with using pastels. You’ll gain confidence to attempt work that you might have otherwise been timid about.
