About the instructor

Jim Tyler, of San Luis Obispo, CA, is exploring the deep, rich side of pastel. Long known as a medium for soft portraits and light colored landscapes, pastel is actually the purest painting medium and provides deep, rich colors. Tyler is using this richness to emphasize the lighting and intense colors in scenes around the Central Coast.Tyler paints exclusively with pastel. Largely self-taught, he began working with pastel at an early age and began painting seriously in 2001. His artwork has been featured in Pastel Journal Magazine’s Top 100 Pastels issue. He has been the featured artist at several galleries and has won awards at numerous national shows.
