Early Spring…the masterful pastel painting of Albert Handell.

A Review by Anne Hevener

“In Albert Handell’s latest DVD, “Early Spring,” viewers are treated to a complete demonstration of the reknowned artist’s technique for employing pastel over a watercolor underpainting. After sharing his reference photos of a pair of fir trees in late winter, his tools and setup, Handell begins with a quick sketch, followed by his application of a watercolor underpainting. And then, the real magic begins as he picks up the pastels and we see the beautiful trees come to life on the paper.”

“Handell is a master at color, and having the opportunity to watch him make color selections is a great revelation. He also has a magical way of handling edges, creating beautiful passages that are rich in texture yet marked by subtlely. There is inspiration here for any pastel painter, but particularly for those who seek to capture the beauty of trees.”
