Language of Color

This lesson is for intermediate and advanced painters. This piece has some lovely opportunities to create something of merit from little or nothing! It’s definitely one of those drive-by photos, but it does have some great patterns of light and shadow. I really exaggerated the color on this one. You can do the same or keep it more faithful to the reference. I recommend following along for a first try, then using one of the alternate reference photos to do a second piece using the same steps; just applying them to the alternate reference photo.

The Watch & Paint Lessons are an eye opening journey that will allow you to become familiar with the medium of pastels and gain the ability to orchestrate it into lovely compositions. Live Lessons happen every month and give you a chance to directly ask Marla questions while she is teaching and painting. Its an invaluable resource in moving forward with pastel painting.
