Bring a sturdy easel to work on. There are many different makes that are good.  The portable French easel, which folds into a box, is recommended for on-location painting.  The best easels are made in France.  They come in two sizes (full- and half-size); both are good.  Mr. Handell uses the full size.




If you are an experienced pastelist, bring the pastels you already have.


There is an Albert Handell 72-color Summer Landscape Set manufactured by the Unison Co.  This landscape set has many beautiful greens – both warm and cool – varying from very light to rich middle tones and dark tones. Mr. Handell modifies his greens with both cool and warm mauves, which are also part of this set.  Many of these mauves relate to the greens in identical value.  The set also has five different sky colors and plenty of rich earth colors.

Mr. Handell selected each and every color that’s in this set.

The colors of this landscape set are used extensively in Mr. Handell’s recent DVD, Early Spring.


These sets are usually available at Mr. Handell’s workshops, or you can order yours directly from Mr. Handell by phone, 505-983-8373 or email  The Unison Landscape Set sells for $350.00 plus $12.00 shipping. 

We accept Visa, Master Card and American Express.

In addition to Unison pastels, Mr. Handell uses a combination of pastels by Schminke, Rembrandt, Sennelier and Nu-pastels
