Did you know that every issue of Pastel Journal comes with an awesome step-by-step demo that will take you inside the painting practice of some of the finest pastelists working today? Our February issue is no exception. You're going to love Z.L. Feng's creative approach to pastel portraits, which is full of tips you can take straight to the easel.
