Lesson Discussion

  1. I am disappointed not to see using the soft pastel sides and creating layering of colors. Feel this is way too basic for an intermediate pastel artist.

  2. hi matt,
    11.some instructors forbid using black ever…. it true it make the painting look flat,dead…
    i really can’t tell at this point of my art journey…
    thanks for your comments!

      • Hi Aura,
        When you click on the button, a dropdown area appears underneath. If you are on a computer with a smaller screen, like a laptop, you will have to scroll down the page after clicking on the button to see all of the download options.

        • I see what happened now. It added to the bottom of the webpage, but that was below my screen and so I did not see the change occur. Thanks Matt. I knew it had to be something simple like that! I love your classes and am learning so very much every day! Thank you.

  3. Could you change the angle of the camera so that we can see the pastel you are using and your strokes as you are working. It is frustrating that all I can see is the back of your hand most of the time.

  4. As the new guy here I can’t say enough about all that is offered here. I do have to agree with Bonnie Keller, it would be so much more beneficial if the camera was on the left side showing pastel to paper. I found myself on a couple occasions trying to look around your hand. Great job, great place I’ll be hanging here for awhile.

  5. Hello matt
    Tried making the rocks once in pastel but i got too overwhelmed added to many layering on top.
    I wanted to know if the same result can be achived using coloured pencils as i am more confident in that
