    In this long-awaited demonstration, world leader in pastel painting, Ellen Eagle, shares with us her personal pastel technique. Ellen walks us through each and every step of her approach as she paints a portrait of child. You will learn how Ellen lays in her painting, develops local areas of color, makes important color decisions, and maintains correct proportions to create a stunning work of art. We encourage you to try your own portrait painting and follow along with Ellen through each of the stages of her process.

    • Homemade Pastel Board (Using Crescent Cold-Press Illustration Board No. 300 or 310)

    Is there a reference photo for us to also copy to follow along with the video?

     

    thanks,

    Hi,

    Same as above, really need a reference photo, to make this more of a lesson than a demo.

    It would also be helpful to have the material list i.e. the pastel reference no.s/names.

    Many thanks,

    Ewan

    Hi Ewan, this is a much older course, and was recorded before we had the reference tab feature. I have reached out to Ellen, but it seems the reference and art work are no longer in her possession. My apologies

    Ellen seems to be switching between the Nupastels and the Rembrandts. Is there a specific reason she switches between the two or is it just about color preferences?
