Pastel Journal Blog
Welcome to the newest evolution of the Artists Network blogs. I’m Cherie, the online editor who will bring you doses of inspiration, free step-by-step drawing and painting lessons and more from The Artist’s Magazine, Pastel Journal, Watercolor Artist and North Light Shop each week. I’ve been a part of this sisterhood of art publications for several years, most recently as associate editor of The Artist’s Magazine, where, with great pleasure, I brought interesting stories about artists to our faithful readers. I can’t wait to share more with you here.
February 2013 Issue | Learn How to Paint a Portrait, Discover Different Approaches to Pastel Landscapes, Painting Inspiration and Pastel Techniques Aplenty
The February 2013 issue of Pastel Journal is a must-have for any artist interested in painting pastel landscapes. You’ll see how three artists with remarkably different approaches to the subject all manage to offer a sense of place that engages and transports viewers.
Since prehistoric times, humans have manifested the desire to express emotion and thought through artistic forms. Often this is done solely for personal enjoyment, but frequently it serves a bigger purpose by communicating personal feelings to other human beings. This desire to be heard, and hopefully understood, has led to the formation of language, the invention of a written alphabet, the arrangement of sound into music, and the placement of pigment upon a painting surface.
