A coastal pastel painting // Working from photos and memory

Hi friends! Last weekend we went down to the coast and I snapped a few photos while I was there. I thought they would be fun to paint. Today I’ll show you how to combine photos to make a painting and how to impart your own experiences and memories into your work.

  1. Hi Lindsey, Heads UP! I went to A&C yesterday to buy some Nupastels only to be told that Prismacolor has discontinued them. Yup, for real! I needed white and they didn’t have any at all. Then I was shown the comment on their computer when they went to order some. Thought you’d like to know and pass this on to your students. Judith

  2. Love this! How is it that you are so good at mixed media? How do you set pastels? Are these like chalk? I do like the creamy Sennelier kind as it seems like lipstick creaminess. How do you set these? I think I’ve read that you can set it with hairspray?
