Rocks provide an ideal painting subject for the landscape artist, offering a plethora of textures and multifaceted surfaces for capturing a variety of light and shadow effects. Plus, they can be almost any shape or size, without appearing unnatural, allowing the artist to shape them as needed to accommodate a strong composition.

About This Lesson

In this lesson, I’ll show and explain in a pastel demo how to set up and create rocks with well edited mark-making that captures the texture of rocks rather than rendering individual bits and pieces. The lesson will also cover how to effectively showcase rocks as your main subject in a painting.
