85 – HOW TO ACCURATELY MATCH COLOR IN PASTEL

We are going to talk what is probably the most fundamental skill that we want to have as painters – that’s the ability to accurately match colors that we observe whether that’s in landscapes, on a model or even in a piece of photo reference. There are some strategies to learn this skill and get really good at it.

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.
