2 day Pastel Portrait Workshop
10/28 - 10/29/22
A STEP BY STEP PROCESS
I have been teaching pastel for many years now and have learned a great deal about explaining the process of creating a painting and helping students to reach their goals by the end of each class.
The challenge is to learn rather than to think that you are going to create the per- fect painting... Painting is not easy and it takes time and training to reach a professional level.
I have found it essential to demonstrate in a step by step process:
1) Sketch in charcoal in 3 values
2) Advanced sketch in 3 values in 1 color (an underlayer)
3) Paint with all the colors, interpretation
4) The magic of the eyes and how to do the background, finish the painting
I have over 200 students in France and the USA. They are very faithful, and that’s the best compliment I could ever receive. I have the feeling they are learning with enthusiasm and joy and always progressing... If I can give you the same feeling, then I am accomplishing my mission: to share my experience of this wonderful pastel technique...
Cecile Houel is a French-American artist who dedicates her life to her Art, always pushing technical limits but still staying true to her own artistic identity. Her fascination for Humanity transpires in her paintings.

A world created with dynamic, vivid color, where sound is transformed into shape and emotion is released in the movement of a paint brush."
