Pastels are fun, versatile and easy to use. Strokes and squiggles of colour can be blended to create beautiful skies, waterscapes and landscapes, and details can be added easily using broad and thin lines. By merging and overlaying colours you can create soft velvety tones, rich textured or subtle effects, atmosphere, light and movement.
This invaluable guide takes you through all the stages of creating a painting, from simple strokes and blending techniques to creating perspective and atmosphere.
Four easy-to-follow practical demonstrations help you gain confidence and build up skills, illustrating all the techniques you need to know...so pick up your pastels and paint!
