The newest addition to Barron's "All About Techniques" art series explains the fundamentals of art theory, then proceeds to step-by-step instruction on how to create complete, highly finished illustrations with pastels. Techniques of color blending and varying textures that are specific to pastels are shown in detail. Clear, instructive text is supplemented with a wealth of full-color photos that show materials, papers, and how to use them. More color illustrations show pastel compositions in progressive stages of completion.
