Pastel Video Workshop: Behind the Scenes with Stephanie Birdsall

Today I had the pleasure of visiting our studio to take a sneak peek at the latest video-workshop-in-progress: Stephanie Birdsall is filming demos in pastel and oil!

Readers of Pastel Journal will be familiar with the artist’s subtle and stunning pastel still lifes, plein air landscapes and florals. (I interviewed Birdsall for a story in the August 2007 issue of the magazine and she appeared more recently in our dream studio tour, a distinctive highlight of our December 2010 issue.)

Plein air painters will be thrilled to know that filming included a special outdoor painting session and painters who dabble in pastel and oil will want to check out the finished results in both media. Enjoy a few photos from the studio below and be sure to look for the videos at soon. (Hint: that’s Pastel Journal Editor, Anne Hevener, featured with the artist at bottom):
