Video: Cindy Barillet
Cindy Barillet, a wonderful French artist, recently shared her first thoughts about PanPastel with her followers. (See 2nd video below, in French). The first video below demonstrates the flower painting she created one of the first times she used PanPastel Colors.
Since she created the video, Cindy has enjoyed using PanPastel for more of her work, here are some more paintings she has created in recent weeks:
“Loco” PanPastel on Pastelmat with some pastel sticks & colored pencils. 24x30cm
“Kody (Shih-Tzu)” PanPastel on Pastelmat, with pastel pencils (Faber Castell) & pastel sticks
The underpainting for this horse portrait was created with PanPastel on Pastelmat, colored pencils & pastel sticks will be used to add details. (2nd image – right).
“Clown Fish” (Poissons Clowns)
Our latest Q&A is with New York City based artist Beverly Brown. We wanted to share her beautiful PanPastel paintings and to find out more about her creative process and why she uses PanPastel. Beverly used PanPastel Colors for all of the work shown below.
My grandfather was a painter, illustrator, and professor. I grew up sitting on his lap watching him draw. It fascinated me. I had an amazing (and patient, ha) art teacher in high school that nurtured my abilities and helped me create a portfolio that was awarded several scholarships to major art schools.
