|Watch and listen as Bob develops the pastel painting
from the first strokes to the final accents.
This is an excellent video for all levels of pastel artists.
He explains and demonstrates the complete process
that he follows to create a pastel landscape. Bob begins with hard
pastels to establish the design and color harmony. Next he scrubs
the hard pastel with mineral spirits to create the undertone and
begins layering with soft pastel. He explains how to see masses
rather than line - and form instead of detail. See how to accurately
simplify colors and values of the major shapes. Aerial perspective,
color harmony, lost and found edges, the principles of painting
water and accent strokes are just a few of the many topics Bob talks
about as he works.
“Bob Rohm’s video is the next best thing to being
there. His straight-forward, unaffected delivery of information
creates a sense of intimacy, as if the viewer were in the studio,
listening while he talks and watching him paint.”—Editor,The Pastel
