William A. Schneider: Princess - Pastel


Video Length: 3 Hours
Gift This Course

Schneider sets up his model in warm light in order to fully explain how the color temperature varies between light and shadow areas on the form.

Working from the live model, Schneider explains his compositional devices, use of the Munsell Color System in selecting a color scheme, and how to keep the Big Four (shape, value, color temperature, edges) in mind during the painting process.

This video is executed in pastel, but is full of useful information for artists in all media. William begins with a discussion of design elements. Viewers will be mesmerized by the emergence of the beautiful model from an abstract foundation of shapes and masses of color. This program is a must for the pastellist’s video library.
