The Pastel Book is a great guide to pastel materials and techniques ever assembled in a single volume, this is the book for anyone working with pastels, from beginners to experienced artists looking to develop more professional skills.
In this comprehensive, professional-level book, every type of pastel technique is demonstrated. Use of other mediums such as watercolor, pencils, even ballpoint pens, are explored showing how they can be used to achieve new effects and enhance already existing works. Also included is an up-to-date catalog of all materials available today. 10,000 first printing.
Defining the pastel medium broadly—color in stick form to be used for drawing and painting simultaneously—the author creates works of sensuous textures and colors, ranging from subtle to intense. He uses traditional soft and hard pastels, as well as oil pastels and oil sticks, showing the effects produced by each in step-by-step demonstrations. Included are sophisticated ways to combine pastels with water, acrylic, alkyd gels, and oil paint for stunning mixed-media results.
