have traveled to many beautiful parts of the country but always love painting the Oregon countryside! We had perfect weather for this workshop including one day of that perfect glowing overcast which provided very stable lighting conditions. The location offered a diversity of vistas, from orchards to pumpkin fields to distant hillsides. In this video, I give you some tips on painting in these locations, a couple demos as well some tidbits while working individually with workshop participants. I hope you enjoy!

With Warmest Regards,


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.
