Painting the Landscape in Pastel Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Known for his use of luminous color, Albert Handell, whose lush landscapes light up these pages, provides lucid instructions to help first-time pastelists achieve impressive results as soon as they begin working with the medium.

After reviewing pastel supplies, the author discusses landscape composition and how to establish large shapes first, abstract certain areas, develop a focal point, work from dark to light, and capture the illusion of reality through color. Stepped demonstrations isolate specific landscape aspects, showing how the pastelist depicts skies, trees, buildings, water, rocks, woods, snow, and light.

Book News Annotation:

A how-to guide illustrated with abundant examples painted by Handell. Both authors are artists living in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
