  1. Painting Automobiles by Frank Francese

    I would like to show you how to quickly put a city scene together using a big brush, bold colors, interesting shapes, people and cars.

  2. Painting Nature Scenes by Frank Francese

    I learned my craft by painting local nature scenes. I would go out on location and just take some color and start laying it in. I really like Aspen trees or Birch trees as people in the west call them.

  4. Painting Figures by Frank Francese

    Here are a few examples on gesture studies on people. I do a lot of negative painting. What I'll do is get the gesture of the figure first, and then I will come in and put a head on. I usually put it in at an angle.

  5. Carmella Jarvi: Introduction to Soft Pastels and Pastel Surfaces

    I'd like to take a moment to share with you some of the pastel products thast are on the market and some of the pastel surfaces and then tell you what pastels work best for me. When you buy soft pastels you can either buy hand-rolled or extruded.

    We've talked about some of the different surfaces for pastel. There's paper, gatorfoam, stiff boards, using your color theory and not using light colors. So in this one I'm going to do this photograph - orange and blue are compliments - so I have this nice terracotta red-orange paper.

  8. Carmella Jarvi: Pastel Painting Water in Landscape

    In this segment, I'm going to show you how I go about painting one of my water in landscape pieces. This time I'm starting with a photograph that I shot on location. Sometimes I work en plein air, but a lot of times I like to go back and work in my studio.

  9. Carmella Jarvi: Pastel Painting a Woman in Water

    In this segment I'm going to walk you through one of my women swimming in water pastel paintings. This is a series I'm known the best for and I've been working on this for a number of years.
