Amazing pastel artist!

The flowers Vera creates with pastel are unbelievable beautiful, I am trying not to miss any of her new painting on social media or other resources. It's great to see how Vera paints, and learn about some of her great techniques. Thank you for sharing the knowledge and your amazing talent!

Natural as Real

Flowers of Ukraine

Very relaxing presentation using pan, pastels and soft sticks, and charcoal. Things are explained very clearly with a nice poetic bent. I learned a lot.
