Publisher Comments:

The newest title in this popular series shows both beginners and intermediate artists the secrets of creating beautiful pastel creations. Artists' commentaries accompany color photographs showing everything from choosing materials and using equipment to building a suitable color, foundation to determining placement for the elements within the artwork. The concepts of tone, color, and texture are all addressed, including how to layer and blend colors to add interest to the composition. Practice exercises help both children and adults improve their skills quickly. As confidence grows, readers can learn advanced skills such as impasto and sgraffito. Then, these advanced techniques can be combined to enable readers to complete the three larger projects that are included.
