Step-By-Step Leisure Arts #20: Landscapes in Pastel
Synopses & Reviews
Paul Hardy shares the delights and beauty of working with a medium that is versatile, exciting and inspiring. This colourful, practical guide illustrates the techniques of applying pastel to a variety of paper surfaces, from field sketching and composing a painting to painting skies, trees, water and reflections. Step-by-step demonstrations show the reader how to paint a series of landscapes from a moody moorland pastoral scene to a gently flowing river, aglow with the warm colours of autumnal trees. The artist is rewarded as fields, trees and flowers spring to life when pastel is applied to paper.
Paul Hardy illustrates the versatility of pastels and shows how to create an exciting range of effects - from the soft, subtle tones of an early morning to the strong, dynamic impression of a stormy landscape.
