How to appraise rather than critique your work

“If you are not going to get a thrill, how can you give someone else one? You must feel the beauty before you start." - Charles Hawthorne



IT’S ALL ABOUT THE PROCESS: learning the right way while having fun and
getting to your next level on the artistic journey...

PASTELS: I do not use oil pastels. I use hard pastels by NuPastels or Rembrandts .

Soft Pastels I use Terry 
Ludwig, Richeson, Unison, among others.

I use mostly:


DEEP ORANGE 212 (NuPastel) 

have to be exact # listed

SOFT PASTELS in a good range from light to middle tones, to darks - LOVE Terry Ludwigs’ darks

I like Girault, Great American, Terry Ludwig, Mount Vision and Blue Earth for


SUBSTRATES: Mostly UART 400 grit mounted, so it doesn’t curl when I add products for techniques.
You can mount your own, on gator board, using repositionable spray adhesive.

I also use gator board, NOT foam core, that I prime with clear gesso or 
textured gesso

Multimedia artboard pink label and others...

I like very much Pastel Premier and Lux Archival - each gives a different result

- Any set of watercolors
(warms and cools) - I like Payne’s Grey and Burnt Sienna specifically which is a cool and a warm for

- Rubbing alcohol 70 or 90% - 90% dries fastest

- Tracing paper if needed to identify 3-5 big shapes

- I use glassine to protect my

work, in a pinch wax paper.

- Clear gesso, and I also use sludge (another 
version of gesso - it’s not clear, it’s light gray)

I also keep on hand fine pumice gel, Art Spectrum Clear primer and pastel ground
400 grit, pastel dust , Spectra Fix fixative - part of the process sometimes.

Once I demo you can decide what you might want to try. No need to have 
everything I use. Use what you already have. This workshop is about techniques 
and possibilities.

A good all purpose reasonable soft pastel set is Terry Ludwig 14 Landscape

I line my easel with foil and add a wet paper towel to catch dust.


- VIVA paper towels (less lint)
- small water spray bottle
- baby wipes
- a 
mirror to look back and see what the painting needs
- neutral beige masking 
tape and black artist tape to frame at the end of a painting
- pencil & sketchbook 
for thumbnails
- Tombow m
arkers if you have them for thumbnails in varying values: light, medium light, medium dark, and dark.
- old oil bristle 1 inch brush

- small palette knife

Your own reference photos in color and in black and white - SMALL 4x6 or 6x8. SIMPLE 3-5 BIG SHAPES

IPad is fine too.

“I believe in the study of technique."
