Few words from Lesley:

Well, first of all, I'm so excited to be teaching in your beautiful country! Thank you for sharing so much of your history and beauty with me.  :-)


As some of you know, I have been painting in pastels for almost 40 years and making a living from my pastel paintings for 35 years. I have written a couple of instruction books and now enjoy teaching people, all over the world! 


Unique workshop in Italy, don't miss this opportunity.

Step by Step

I am most known for my horses, so why don't we paint one together?  I will show you the two types of strokes that I use on velour paper with pastels and help you learn how to do them well.  Then we will practice painting a horse eye together. I will help you, every step of the way by doing a demonstration of what we will be painting and then moving around the room to see how you're doing and helping you if needed.


After you've finished the horse eye and are feeling good about that, we will move onto painting a horse head or maybe even a whole horse!


You will go home with a new way of working with pastels, as my technique is quite different from the way most people use them.  Mine gives a depth and reality to the painting that isn't seen a lot with the medium of pastels.


If you aren't familiar with my work, you can see some of it at or my blog at


Hope to see you there!
