Welcome to

Featuring courses, workshops and critiques with artist Mary Herbert. For anyone who enjoys working with the wonderful medium of pastel and who wants to learn more about it.  I hope that beginners, improvers and advanced painters will all find something useful here.

I’m a specialist at painting animals using hard pastels and pastel pencils so if you’re interested in creating pet portraits or in painting exciting pictures of horses, dogs, or other hairy beings, please explore the site. Have a look at the courses and workshops I’m offering; you can also arrange private tuition, or perhaps you’d like an online critique of your art, straight to your email.

I also offer a portrait commission service - please click here to visit my dedicated website

If you’d like to shop for artwork, my original paintings for sale and prints (limited editions and open editions) are available to order online from Villa
