"Tobi’s workshop saved me a lot of time and money. Some things I thought I would like didn’t work for me. This is the first workshop that provided the opportunity to explore other brands of papers and pastels and I discovered other brands I really like. Having  free samples to play with made is so fun! I came away understanding the importance of shapes and color values and am looking forward to incorporating this knowledge into my future pastel paintings."
