Karen Margulis: Expressive Pastel Painting



Consistently create successful pastel paintingsby utilizing a system that will help you overcome fear, gain confidence, and allow you to be bold in expressing your new-found personal style.


Karen Margulis knows the challenges many pastel artists face:

  • Relying too heavily on reference photos, not allowing a personal touch
  • Jumping right into a painting without proper preparation
  • Adding fine details without having a solid foundation first
  • Getting stuck halfway through a painting and not knowing where to go next
  • Dull, muddy colors
  • Overworking a painting and not recognizing when done is done
  • Not having a solid system to follow each time you create a new painting


When you study with Karen, you’ll discover the ‘like clockwork’ system she uses to stay creative and consistent … all without compromising quality. 


Here’s just a hint of what you’ll discover with Karen:

  • LOOSEN UP and be more free in your work
  • Use more INTERESTING COLORS and move away from only local colors
  • Overcome Fear of the BLANK CANVAS
  • Know exactly when a painting is FINISHED
  • EXPLORE the pastel medium and experiment with UNUSUAL techniques
