Albert will be sharing his expertise at the upcoming PACE convention in two demos:

1. Painting Trees: Join master painter Albert Handell as he demonstrates his techniques painting his favorite subject - trees. You will see how Albert works from dark to light,  from the centre of interest out and his unique use of different colors of similar values.

2. Waterfalls and moving water with oils: Capturing the movement of water is one of the most requested demos from students, because there is water everywhere - lakes, rivers, oceans. Master artsist Albert Handell will share his techniques including how to create a transparent, quick drying underpainting, finding the central point of interest, working from dark to light  and how to add atmosphere and distance to the landscape.
