Albert Handell Swirl of LifeTHE SWIRL OF LIFE By Albert Handell. WC under painting finished with pastel 12 x 18 (this technique will be demonstrated on Tuesday)


The workshop hours are from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM daily. For your convenience the studio opens at 9 AM.

  • Demonstrations in the morning from 9:30AM to noon
    (2 demos are in oils and 2 in pastel)
  • 1-4:30PM- painting on location, weather permitting, with Albert’s help at the easel

The studio demonstrations will clearly show how he perfects his outdoor studies and bring life to his paintings from 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 four daily morning demonstrations, from 9:30 AM to noon; all demos are from start to finish. 3 demos are in the studio – The 4th is on location.

  • Monday demo is mixed media pastel (watercolor under painting, finishing with pastel).
  • Tuesday demo is in oils. This oil demo is from beginning to finish. It also takes in glazing and scumbling, two valuable techniques, rarely demonstrated in workshops, and closely relates to the technique of “feathering” in pastels
  • Actual Oil Demonstration 16×20

  • Wednesday we paint all day on location. Albert will paint in pastel with you in the morning, and help you at the easel in the afternoon.
  • On Wednesday evening, from 7 to 9PM, we will have a workshop dinner together at a local restaurant (please individual checks), spouses are very welcomed.

  • On Thursday 9:30AM-noon, second oil demo in the studio. In the afternoon (1-4:30PM), work on location with help at the easel.
  • Friday morning there is a farewell in-depth critique for every artist, please bring to the studio everything you have painted during the week, plus 6-8 works you have painted previous to the workshop.
  • In the afternoon we will stay in the studio and finish the works we have started at locations, with help at the easel.
    The afternoons, from 1-4:30 PM we will be painting at designated locations. If the weather is bad, we will be painting in the studio. Albert will give individual help to each artist at the easel. Every afternoon you are welcome to paint in the medium of your choice.
