We’re bringing this video course out of the vault and into the spotlight for those who may not have known about it previously.


Here’s just a glimpse of what you’ll experience in Pastel Painting Secrets:

  • Painting with pastels is easy and fun — For those who haven’t used pastels or are new with them, Bill will show you how techniques from other mediums easily cross over to pastels
  • You’ll be inspired to take your pastel drawing and painting event further when you begin to learn the secrets Bill uses in his award-winning pastel work
  • Develop an entirely new style of painting when you add pastels to your skillset. It’s a great next step to reignite your passion for art. 
  • Create an endless palette — Limited only by your imagination, you can create any color. You’ll love how easy mixing is with pastels. Just think … no more purchasing a single tube of color only to use it once
  • And so much more…


When Bill sets out to create a portrait, his goal is to capture the essence of the model as a unique human being, going well beyond a mere rendering or “lookalike.” He aims to create an emotional response in viewers, allowing them the freedom to see the model as they really are — unique, beautiful, and without perfectly symmetrical features. He makes them real — just as we all are.

Bring this kind of depth and meaning into your own artwork.
