Whether you use Oils or Pastels, whatever your skill level, Rosalie will coach you as your confidence grows and you learn HOW to see so you can paint light, as you learn WHAT to look for so you can bring brilliance and presence to your subject! Pastels, the unsung medium of yesterday is today's most forgiving, immediate, brilliant vehicle for expressing yourself. Oils are classically the juiciest, brightest, deliciously reflective medium everl!

Paint from the still life designed to show you the light, or from your own reference imagery. Though Value does the work, Color gets the credit, and I will show you how to make your color SING!
