A must have! Review by Rosemarie

This video is a treasure to have. You will gain confidence on how to paint landscapes in pastel, both soft pastel and Pan Pastel. It is very informative. Johannes tells more about his painting technique than he does in his other demos in pastel which simplifies for a newbie like me.

Mrs Review by Arlene

I have been painting oil and watercolor for decades. I am new to pastel and did not find this video helpful. Half the time I thought the camera was not close enough to the canvas to actually see what he was doing. Maybe I choose a subject too hard for a beginner.

AT LAST!!! Review by Connie

I have been waiting for this Pastel DVD ever since Jo and North Light started releasing the DVDs for each of the mediums he teaches. I ordered this one as soon as I received notice that it had been released. I was so glad to get it that I immediately opened it to watch. I will tell you I was not disappointed in it's content! It is a little different as Jo paints a little looser on this DVD than he does in his demos but, it is just what I needed. I have all of the downloads that North Light has released of Jo's work. He is an excellent teacher as he talks continually during his demos telling you why he is doing what he is doing. Also if he makes a error, as everyone will do upon occasion, he shows you how to correct it. Definitely 5 stars!!!
