What Are Mediums? Mediums are additives that alter how colors work, extending the techniques and finished effects that are possible.

The new PanPastel Mediums are – Colorless Blender, Pearl White (Fine & Coarse) and Pearl Black (Fine & Coarse). The new mediums have all the characteristics of PanPastel Colors, they are mixable, erasable, low dust, lightfast and professional artist’s quality.

PanPastel Pearl Medium – Black Mix the Black Pearl Mediums with PanPastel Colors to create shimmering darks and shades for rich, jewel-like effects. Each white and black medium is available in fine and coarse.

FINE – Contains smaller particles to create a soft and subtle pearl sheen.
COARSE – Contains larger particles to create a more shimmering sparkle.


PEARL MEDIUMS PanPastel Pearl Mediums add a pearlescent sheen / shimmer which changes depending on the angle it is viewed from, this also creates dimension. The Pearl Mediums can be mixed with PanPastel Colors for custom pearlescent colors or used on their own for mixed media.

PanPastel Pearl Medium – White Create your own custom pearlescent colors by mixing the White Pearl Mediums with PanPastel Colors, to tint colors and add a soft pearlescent sheen. (Image below shows Turquoise with Pearl Medium White)]]>

<![CDATA[PanPastel-colorless blender]]> http://www.donnadowney.com/panpastel-colorless-blender.html COLORLESS BLENDER
Introducing the first Colorless Blender for soft pastels. The PanPastel Colorless Blender is a medium that can be used for a variety of new effects including increasing transparency and enhancing color “flow”.

Using The Colorless Blender
Use the Colorless Blender to create transparent effects with PanPastel Colors. The image below shows how you can use the Colorless Blender to create a transparent effect without changing the hue of the pigment. By comparison, when using PanPastel White with the same color (Permanent Red 340.5) the effect is very different – white will tint the color, changing the final effect and making the color more opaque. Unlike the Colorless Blender which made it more transparent and retained the hue.

It can be used before color is applied (under the color), or mixed with the color after it is applied]]>

<![CDATA[48 Weeks Online Course - Pay in Full]]> http://www.donnadowney.com/48-week-online-course-pay-in-full.html

An online course experience like none other

Have you ever wanted to spent the weekend at an event, immersed yourself in an artists creative process, soaked in the passion that the artist puts into her work and leave so inspired that you want to create all day everyday? But then as that experience gains distance from the present you loose that passion that so inspired you during that weekend because the muse, the Artist, is no longer there encouraging you and pushing you to feel the urge to create with the same freedoms.

48 weeks in an ongoing ever-present event that will envelop you in the creative process and allow you to rewind, revisit and recapture that passion for art on your own terms. It is a full immersion weekend times 12 months.

Learn to hone in on your personal style and channel your intuitive truth by trusting the process. Develop a working repertoire of tricks, product knowledge and skills while creating a years worth of art solidifying yourself as a master of your own artistic domain.

--- the background behind the inspiration for this course.

For the past 6 years I have been art journaling, seriously keeping a visual diary of who I am as an Artist, developing techniques, learning new products and building a comprehensive working knowledge of working in mixed-media layers. almost religiously for the last 3 years of those 6 years, I have been keeping an "Inspiration Journal".

I have used this journal each week as a teaching tool. Just as a student practices her craft, I practiced the creative freedom of letting go, painting intuitively and learning and developing my skills as an artist. I have learned acceptance and creative confidence and in doing so, made that process open to you in the hopes of empowering you each week to believe in the process too.

During those same 3 years, I began trusting the process, I took the next leap into implementing these skills in a larger format, taking the process another step further and applying my art on canvas. I quickly learned bridging the ideas from art journals to canvas gave me a broader understanding of the medias I was working with.

48 weeks, my year long course for 2014, incorporates not only the skills learned through art journaling but also the knowledge gained through working on larger scale canvases. (Kinda like "inspiration Wednesday" and "Canvas Create" had a baby!)

48 weeks is a year long comprehensive online course that empowers each of us to allow the natural ebb and flow of our artistic styles guide the creative process, building a strong foundation for your art, your creative confidence as well as an incredibly vast repertoire of techniques that stretch beyond just the art journal page.

I wanted to create this workshop as the touchstone of each students creative journey. This year long course explores dozens of fascets of the creative process and takes each student beyond the art into a creative awaking each week.

We will create together, working on the pages of our journals each week expressively documenting every milestone as we complete the 48 entries, documenting our growth as an artist in 2014.

Because I have always wanted to fill and complete an A3 Moleskine journal, I am using this LARGE format journal (16 x 22") as my diary of this journey. The actual book you use does not change the process or the practice. I want you to work with whatever you feel the most comfortable working in, you can even choose to work on canvases if that fits your style.

48 weeks is a work at your own pace online course that includes 48 weeks of creative and expressive art that will inspire you to dig deeper into your creative soul, develop your personal style and leave it on the page. Every 3 months you will receive another 12 weeks of course lessons. these lessons are fully downloadable, which means they are yours forever to save, re-watch, rewind and to reference for a lifetime.

I invite all of you to join me this year as I share from my heart, my creative journey and artistic practices that fuel the passion I have for art.

"Art makes the spirit soar.

And when the spirit is lifted, life follows."

(And kick your rear into gear when necessary, she’s sassy like that.)

As the title suggests, this workshop is about transformation, the literal transformation of the medias and surfaces as we work in layers, but also the adaptations you as the Artist will bring and incorporate into your own pieces.

Using muslin fabric as your substrate, you will begin building structural layers by adding thin layers of joint compound and wet mediums giving your pages a textural, sculpted feel. In class, I will work along with you modeling the processes and demonstrating how bendability and color can play into your overall designs.

We will discuss “mark making” and use this skill as a means to incorporate each Artist’s own signature into their work and build upon that style by identifying the theme of your ARTbook using image transfers.

By further understanding glazes and finishes your books transformation from fabric to ART will emerge, and lastly we will finish by binding your completed ARTbooking piece.

Stephen Lursen is back with a brand new art instructional video! This time he is teaching you step by step from white canvas to the very last brush stroke of a beautiful coffee themed painting. The paints he uses are acrylics. This video is a total of an hour and a half, broken down into 6 separate chapters, to make it easier to download and stream on your computer or device. "Coffee Cup Workshop" is a brand new art instructional video where Stephen Lursen demonstrates and explains each and every step, not only does he explain and demonstrate how to achieve this painting, but he also elaborates on how you can make it your own by using your own subject matter and favorite color palette. This painting is a beautiful combination of abstraction and realism. Painting along with this video will greatly increase your understanding of both art forms.

Coffee Cup Workshop is in 720p HD for better clarity than previous videos. Each part is labeled appropriately for easy use, chapters 1 through 6 respectively.

I am so excited to bring you this new Fall/Winter classic! I hope you enjoy this workshop as much as so many others have locally in our studio! ]]>
