Pastel Pick of the Week | Painting Portraits With Mario Robinson

Hot off the press (or hot off whatever machine makes a DVD) come three brand-new videos with portrait and figure artist Mario Robinson. Robinson is a versatile artist who works in a variety of media, including oil, watercolor and—yay!—pastel.


The painting, Self-Portrait in Pastel, is a wonderful example of the fine draftsmanship, technical skill and emotional power that Robinson brings to his work.


The award-winning artist is well-known for his ability to not only capture an exquisite and accurate rendering, but also the unique character and story in each of his models. In this new collection, you’ll get to observe and learn from this celebrated painter in both DVD and downloadable companion guides for each of the three demonstrations filmed for ArtistsNetworkTV:

  • Portrait Painting – Pastel & Watercolor on Paper
  • Portrait Drawing – Capturing Expression
  • Portrait Painting – Oil on Paper
