Watch and listen as Master Pastelist Albert Handell works in his studio combining several reference photographs to paint In The Cedar Grove At Point Lobos. Mr. Handell demonstrates and explains his technique by first developing the composition and drawing with a pencil on sanded pastel paper. Next, he creates a watercolor underpainting to establish the color harmony and value pattern. See close up how he emonstrates the importance of "the touch" as he layers pastels and works with various colors of similar value to achieve luminous passages with sharp and "sleepy" edges. As the video flows Mr.Handell pauses to explain in detail what he has done in the drawing, underpainting, and painting process. See how he adds "sparkle" with his finishing touches.

What many of her collectors don't know is that Elizabeth has been a teacher of art for almost as many years as she has been a painter. She is a clear and articulate instructor and can explain what and why she is doing on the canvas at any point in the process. For this reason, she has made a fantastic educational DVD on how she paints the still life in this program. She spent almost a week in our studio, filming three programs to be released in sequence. When she was finished, it was difficult to decide which to release first, as they were all equally stunning. And, all three are equally informative.
