Friday, March 8th – Sunday, March 10th, 2013
Workshop Limited to 16 Artists
Hosted by the New Mexico Art League
Studio Location: 3409 Juan Tabo NE (behind the public library)
Join Albert Handell in his second annual exciting 3 day indoor/ studio painting workshops. You will see and learn what to select and emphasis and what to play down or even take out of your paintings in order to make a strong design statement. And work sensibly towards finish. It will be an opportunity to see how a Master Artist works in a studio setting to perfect his outdoor studies and bring life to his photographs. The workshop is geared to all levels of artists of the landscape and the still life, who have some experience working in pastels, oils, or water media.
There are three daily morning demonstrations, from 9:30 AM to noon; all demos are from beginning to finish… The first demo is with pastels from beginning to finish, the second demo is mixed media pastel (watercolor under painting, finishing with pastel), the third demo is in oils.
In the afternoons, from 1:00-4:30 PM you will be working from your landscape photographs and/or outdoor studies. And those who wish to work from still-life are welcome to do so. Albert will give individual help to each artist at the easel, he will help you achieve better studio paintings; you are welcome to paint in the medium of your choice.
The workshop hours are from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM daily.

Albert Handell’s Suggested Art Supplies for On-Location Landscape Painting
For Plein Air Painting:
Some general supplies are your portable easel, a hat with a wide brim, sunscreen, etc. Unfortunately umbrellas, which could be useful, are difficult to take onto airplanes.
Bring a sturdy easel to work on. There are many different makes that are good. The easel that Albert Handell uses and that works well for both oils and pastels is the portable French easel. This portable easel folds into a box, and is recommended for on location painting. The best easels are made in France. They come in two sizes (full and half-size); both are good. Mr. Handell uses the full size. If you have a different easel that you use- bring it!
‘Island Costal Trees’, Pastel 12×18 by Albert Handell
What Art Supplies Should The Pastel Artist Bring?
If you are painting in pastel, bring all the pastels that you have and the pastel papers that you like to paint on – plus a few lightweight drawing boards i.e., made of foam core or gator board or any lightweight material. Albert likes to use the Kitty Wallis Sanded Paper in both white and their Belgium Mist grey tone, they both come in pads of 8 sheets, and he prefers the 12×18” size, but if you wish to work on a smaller size, these pads are also available in 9×12”. These are very handy pads for pasteling on location, and can be purchased from Dakota Art Supplies (they only sell pastel supplies) at
888.345.0067. Albert also paints with pastel on U-Art sanded papers 500-p and 600-p, grits.
If you wish to work on other pastel papers, be sure to bring them to the workshop.
If you are an experienced pastelist, bring the pastels you already have.
What Pastels should I bring?
- All pastel brands are good, since plein air painting is a one session experience. Mr. Handell paints with a combination of Unison, Schmenke, Nu-Pastels, Rembrandt, Senelier, to name a few. Bring what you already have.
Other Pastel Materials:
- A few sticks of soft vine charcoal
- Masking tape
- Light weight drawing board (foam core)
- Spray fixative (any brand)
- Kneaded eraser
- Folding TV tray (optional)
