Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pastels offer tremendous versatility, fabulous textures and rich, vibrant color. Through discussions of the various types of pastels, including soft and hard pastels, oil pastels, water-soluble pastels and pastel pencils, you'll learn which medium is best for your own project, how to choose paper, tips for applying color and moderating finger pressure, and the use of fixatives, both during the working and after completion of the piece. Hundreds of color photographs and illustrations and detailed instructions show how to execute such techniques as pouncing, gradation and blending, scumbling, overlaying, hatching and cross-hatching, and even the Sfumato method favored by Leonardo da Vinci. You'll also appreciate the featured demonstrations by top pastel artists that reveal the precise steps they take to create landscapes, animals, still life, and the human form; expert advice you can then use for your own creative expression.
