Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This petite guide is a truncated version of Pastel Painting Step-by-Step (below), focusing only upon the basics for those new to this medium. Similar to that title, it covers materials, mark making, color blending, composition, and perspective. It offers a smaller selection of step-by-step painting exercises and covers a smaller range of subjects, including landscapes and water; discusses techniques such as use of a limited palette; and offers suggestions for creating atmosphere within a picture. VERDICT Those who wish to cut to the chase can use this minimalist guide to learn pastels quickly.
