Painting Rocks | Albert Handell

Rocks needn’t be a static element in a landscape. Renowned pastel artist Albert Handell translates the exciting shapes and beautifully nuanced color into dramatic pastels.

In the June 2013 issue of Pastel Journal, Handell offers insight into how he approaches the subject, perhaps ironically, based on lessons he learned years go while painting still life and the figure.
