Watch and listen as Master Pastelist Albert Handell works in his studio combining several reference photographs to pastel.
In The Cedar Grove At Point Lobos Mr. Handell demonstrates and explains his technique by first developing the composition and drawing with a pencil on sanded pastel paper. Next, he creates a watercolor underpainting to establish the color harmony and value pattern. See close up how he demonstrates the importance of “the touch” as he layers pastels and works with various colors of similar value to achieve luminous passages with sharp and “sleepy” edges. As the video flows Mr. Handell pauses to explain in detail what he has done in the drawing, underpainting, and painting process. See how he adds “sparkle” with his finishing touches.
