free pastel painting lessons

free pastel painting lessonsBy request, I’ve decided to provide free pastel painting lessons through instructional videos on YouTube.
I also have time-lapse videos available. I will be sharing more instructional videos for beginner pastel painters in the near future. 
The supply list is short and affordable.
Here are the supplies you’ll need:
A 24 set box of Mungyo Gallery soft pastels
One white soft pastel – Rembrandt or Unison are my choices.
Pastel paper. Preferably Uart brand but any other paper you can get your hands on will do.
(optional)Razor blade
Kneadable eraser
(optional)Tortillon, blending stumps or foam wedges if you don’t want to blend with your fingers.

View a list of my most used supplies.

That’s all you need to start out!

The basic rules with pastels are light colors over dark colors, and soft pastels over hard pastels (if you’re layering). 

Below are the free images I used for the instructional videos.
The titles link to the YouTube lessons.
