Pastel Landscape Course with Margaret Evans, Part 2

In Pastel Landscape Course, Part 2, from artistsnetwork.tv, artist Margaret Evans explores different surfaces and underpaintings for pastels. Follow along, step by step, as she paints three dramatic scenes--a street scene in Tuscany helps you learn how to simplify details, a Venetian waterscape shows you how to use gouache as an underpainting on sanded paper, and a mountain landscape on watercolor paper uses a wet pastel underpainting to create a gorgeous atmospheric effect. In this preview Margaret shows you how to simplify a street scene while still capturing the feeling.
