View Full Version : Pastels Wow!

I just took a pastels workshop last weekend from James Southworth of Salem, Oregon. The workshop was fantastic. Jim is a very talented self taught pastel artist having earned several awards for his paintings. See his web site for more information and his online tutorials.


I would recommend his workshop to any beginning pastels artist. I am now getting together all the materials needed to start painting with pastels. I can't wait to get started painting.
