Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The eight projects included in this introduction to working with pastels cover basic methods and utilize a handy color wheel that shows the shade achieved by mixing any two pastels. Techniques such as blending with a torchon, creating highlights and shadows, lifting off, and working dark to light are applied to a variety of subjects, from still lifes and landscapes to buildings and woodland scenes. This artistic guide also surveys the equipment needed to get started and reveals handy tips on the best color combinations. A collection of pastel works at the end of the book displays beautiful artwork that demonstrates what is possible using this versatile medium.

Synopsis:

Eight step-by-step projects and a unique pastel colour mixing wheel.
