For both beginners and more experienced artists, this is a guide to the full scope of pastel use with particular emphasis on capturing light, color, and texture.
Pastels are an extremely versatile and immediate medium, and these characteristics can lead to bold, exciting, and impromptu paintings. However, their responsive, flexible nature can also be used to create subtle, gentle color with little or no texture.
With sections on painting landscapes, coastal scenery, interiors, still life, figures, and portraits, this practical book guides artists through the full possibilities of painting in pastels.
