In this 49-minute artistsnetwork.tv (http://www.artistsnetwork.tv)video workshop, Pastel Painting on Location with Michael Chesley Johnson (artistsnetwork.tv), paint a sunny distant cliff and grassy foreground, focusing on light and dark contrasts and simple shapes. Michael's relaxed and thorough teaching style leads you through every step--initial sketch, establishing color values and shapes, underpainting, restating and refining—to capture a landscape filled with texture and visual depth.

In this preview you'll adjust color and value in the sky, foreground and background, as you practice layering colors and using special strokes to blend and move color for sparkling results!
