Overview

One of the world's first truly interactive art instruction books, The Pastel Color Wheel Book will help anyone who wants to paint in pastels produce quality art in days. It begins with a look at the equipment you'll need to get started and then describes basic principles of color mixing and applying color.

The book presents a series of eight step-by-step projects designed to teach you the most rewarding pastel techniques, such as blending with a torchon, working dark to light, lifting off, and creating highlights and shadows, all applied to subjects from still lifes to landscapes, and from buildings to woodland. By working through the projects, you'll increase your knowledge and confidence.

Each project also introduces and illustrates the most important technique for the project and gives at-a-glance advice on color mixing. The color wheel on the jacket allows mixes to be immediately visible, for successful paintings every time.
