Pastel Painting Demonstration by Master-Pastelist Donna Aldridge 
during an art class she was teaching in Kansas City. This was a demo 
with a focus on establishing composition, seeing and using the light 
and shadow, seeing color, showing form through use of both color and 
light/shadow, looking for light fall off, seeing how objects of 
nearly the same color differ, learning ways of turning edges, seeing 
colors in shadow and in light areas, noticing and using the 
differences in similar objects, their placement and orientation.
