  • Do You Know All Your Lines?

    Two Women with Still Life by Willem de Kooning, pastel and charcoal on paper, 22 1/4 x 18 3/4 in., 1952. The artifice of line is one of the aspects of drawing that I am most in love with. The fact that we can take line—which doesn't exist in the natural world—and create works of art that...

  • I Could Start Every Painting This Way

    Here's the oil painting by Casper David Friedrich that I have on a postcard called The Sea of Ice (1824, oil on canvas, 38 x 50).

  • Taking Off the Straightjacket

    I am not a finicky person, so getting my hands dirty to get a job done is totally fine with me. But with painting, I can get so uptight and hesitant that the physical joy of it all goes right out the window. I'm trying to be better about what I'm calling my straightjacket tendency, and one way...

  • The Best Art for a Control Freak Like Me

    One of my favorite still-life artists is G. Daniel Massad. He plays with space in an incredible way. His pastel paintings are stark, eerie, and lovely all at once. Above, Three Plums and Rosehip , 2005, pastel, 11 x 10 7/8. What I love best about still life painting is that I have absolute control—over...

  • Has anyone tried using Pastels and colored pencil?

    I've been using Prismacolor pencils for a number of years. I recently started doing larger portraits, so I was looking for a media that would allow me to do larger areas and blend color just as easily. I tried Prismacolor's Nupastels. I enjoyed the feel of them, and the ease of use, and that...
