In this artistsnetwork.tv (http://artistsnetwork.tv) workshop, Pastel Workout with Jackie Simmonds, Part 1, you'll build a knowledge of how pastels work in order to create great paintings. Jackie starts out with playful exercises designed to get you familiar with the types of pastels, strokework, layering, blending, underpainting and more. You'll then move on to apply these techniques as you create single subjects in pastel, then finish up with three complete painting demos—a lush landscape, vibrant floral and fun veggie still life.

In this preview you'll practice working with the side of your pastels as you create an abstract design, learning how to stroke on color, block in shapes and blend multiple colors.
