“The ideal introduction to the medium of pastel, Painting With Pastels begins with an essential common-sense guide to choice of materials and to their care and organisation.
The following sections advise on the techniques of painting landscapes and portraits, still-lifes, buildings, water and sky with the subtle, effective and often disregarded pastel medium. The full-colour illustrations and carefully chosen line drawings will provide real inspiration and valuable practical guidance for the amateur artist moving into the medium of pastel painting.”
