In this artistsnetwork.tv (http://www. artistsnetwork.tv) video, Richard McKinley shows you how to break up your painting into "The Three S's"—sensitivity (concept), serendipity (underpainting) and solve (response and resolution)--to focus your painting process for beautiful results. After a review of materials, Richard takes you step by step through the three stages as he paints a lush canal scene. He uses helpful charts and gorgeous finished examples throughout for added instruction and inspiration.

In this preview from Three Stages for Successful Pastel Paintings (http://www.artistsnetwork.com/video_preview.aspx?id=14320), Richard tiptoes into the painting, taking incremental steps as he bridges colors from an underpainting with pastel.
