Difficult to Follow 19 Mar. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
At first glance this book seems almost as simple as paint-by-number, but when trying to do the projects I found that the explanations were sketchy and the photographs didn't show every step. I'm not an absolute beginner with pastels but my attempts certainly didn't get anywhere near the projects shown, and I don't feel as thought I learned anything. It's nice to see what's possible, but it would be better to work with simpler projects that are explained in detail. I definitely don't recommend this book to anyone who is not already accomplished in oil painting if not pastels.

This book is a good step-by-step guide to learning pastel painting from the masters for example Edgar Degas. Not every master's example is painted with pastel, some are oil paintings. But the author wants to explain the basics concerning the choice of colour, composition, the contrast between dark and light partsand so on, so that afterwards in so called tutorials the student gets a step-by-step support painting similar motives. In the last chapter the book contains a very good instruction for pastel techniques.
