New Pastel Videos | Color and Value Secrets with Colleen Howe

colleen howe

Artist Colleen Howe came to the offices this past spring to shoot new video workshops for ArtistsNetwork.TV. It’s always a pleasure to watch our video stars at the easel, and I had the pleasure of watching a good chunk of Colleen’s shoot. For the first video, “Color and Value Secrets for Successful Pastels,” Colleen demonstrated the importance of making good choices in the beginning of the painting process to ensure a powerful composition. She discussed values and showed how she explores a variety of value combinations to find the arrangement with the most impact. Of course, she made it look really easy. But, when put into practice, the tips she shared really do make easier work—and a more successful outcome.

You can find this workshop on DVD, as well as her second workshop—“Color Harmony for Luminous Pastels”—at our online shop: And, as luck would have it, there happens to be a 20% off store-wide sale going on right now through the weekend. So don’t delay!
