Wendy Layne Video
At a show in Texas recently, we met Wendy Layne, an artist full of passion and enthusiasm for both her work and PanPastel. We loved Wendy’s energy! And it turns out Wendy loves PanPastel, she told us how much she appreciates the fact that she can reduce the time it takes to create her large scale drawings.
About this video she says “This drawing took about 17 hours from start to finish. It was much quicker because I used PanPastel for the base of the skin tones rather than my usual 100% colored pencil faces. I saved around 70 hours on this drawing versus those of the same size where I did NOT use PanPastel.” Wow!

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.
