A review by an editorial intern! Review by Sarah Roveda

While some of us are stuck fantasizing about bringing our travel photographs to life, four artists in the August issue of Pastel Journal have managed to capture some of those same scenes in their stunning pastel paintings. Another pastelist branches out and adds new elements to his typical seascapes, and he’s not the only one including new subjects in his paintings: follow along with our step-by-step demonstration for incorporating different pieces into your still lifes. With all of this inspiration to paint en plein air and expand your horizons, you won’t want to miss our review of the new pastels that might be the missing link between you and your next painting. This issue is one that will keep you painting all summer long. Enjoy!
