- Wonderful tips for creating portraits with pastels! Review by VRoot
I have some experience with pastels, but after years of being out of practice - my most recent attempt at creating a pastel portrait had me spouting less than friendly words towards the medium. Seeing Picard's beautiful work though, I couldn't help but be inspired!
Alain Picard is a wonderful artist as well as instructor. His pacing was appropriate and I gained very useful tips to composing a drawing and keeping proportions in check. I also like how the video is sectioned out- His method to creating is very organized, but his artwork is still free and lively.
Overall this was a wonderful guide to getting started with pastels and I'm definitely happy with my purchase.
