Taja, Photorealistic Pastel Painting by Carole Rodrigue
Pastel 8 x 10
 
This pastel portrait is of my dog and was created for a future full pastel tutorial which will be available for streaming on my tutorial page. It'll be a very detailed, step-by-step lesson where I will show you exactly how I painted this from start to finish so you may also learn to paint photorealism. In the meantime, please enjoy this quick time-lapse demonstration!

This gorgeous guy was painted for a Patreon tutorial. In this tutorial, I teach how to paint black fur in pastels, and the whole project is explained step by step as I draw in pastels. I also created a YouTube mini tutorial if anyone is interested! Also, please check out this blog post I wrote about painting black fur. Feel free to inquire about art tutorials!

Little Rabbit and Eggs by Carole Rodrigue
Pastel 10 x 8
 
I painted this little guy for a Patreon tutorial. The whole tutorial is split into two parts and is fully narrated, as are all my videos. It also contains a lot of really time footage, especially where it counts! If you're not into taking painting lessons but are interested in watching my process, I have a quick speed painting video here where you can see this painting develop! Please be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you never miss a video!

Biography

 
"When I paint, I get lost in a zone where every brush stroke becomes an exercise in meditation, contemplation, patience and self-development.  Whether I'm painting animals or objects, I try to bring out their beauty through light and colour so that each creation is contributing to adding beauty in this world.  My goal is to make the world a brighter place, one painting at a time."

Like most artists, I just never grew out of loving to draw and work with colour, and creating something of beauty out of nothing.  My mother always recognized that I had a certain talent that needed to be nurtured. When I was a teen, I had become quite rebellious and was routinely getting into trouble. In order to keep me busy with something that interested me, my mother started bringing me to oil painting classes she took through a community program.

Throughout adulthood, I kept painting once in a blue moon whenever the mood struck, but later on I became much more serious.  I started painting various subjects, from horses, to pets, to still life and landscapes.  In 2008, I entered my first art competition and won 2nd place for "Cafe Regular".  I've won more competitions since.
