Upcoming "Exploring Color" Studio-Only, Pastel-Only Workshop

Walk Through Fire
6x9 pastel, plein air
Painted with the Extreme Limited Pastel Palette

I've been asked to teach a four-day, studio-only, pastel-only "Exploring Color" workshop.  I think this is a great idea, because pastel painters tend to be limited by the "if I don't have the exact right color, I'm in trouble" way of thinking.  The good news is, you can do a lot with just a few colors!

Below are the details:

In this studio-only workshop, you will learn about different color palettes, color temperature as it relates to the landscape and still life, the advantages of starting with a monochromatic grisaille and how color can be used to create depth in a painting.  As a bonus,you'll learn about my "extreme limited pastel palette" and how it will help with color-mixing skills.  For this workshop, students will need a large variety of pastels including both high-chroma sticks, neutrals and earth colors.  Students should be comfortable with painting in pastel.

Workshop runs February 24-27, Tuesday-Friday, 9-1 each day in Sedona, Arizona.  Maximum number of students: 5.

Cost of the workshop:  $300 with a $150 non-refundable deposit.  To register and pay the deposit, visit and sign up on the schedule page.
