This book gives lovely examples thus encouraging the pastel painter to experiment. I would recommend this book to someone who is beginning to be a bit adventurous with the medium and wants to try some new techniques..

One of the best pastel instructions by Maggie Price 28 April 2011
By A.Bennett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When you are an artist, you tend to collect a lot of books on the " how to's " and many of them end up on the bookshelf and not being used. This one is a total exception! She has some wonderful techniques for painting sunlight and shadows and she is easy to follow. She goes step by step and has some great demonstrations. I use this book all the time because I tend to forget stuff, so I grab her book and can easily look it up. Well worth the price!!

Painting Sunlight and Shadow with Pastels: Essential Techniques for Brilliant Effects

I love this book!

It goes through the basics. It covers shadows and lighting in every possible scenario. Shadows are often a difficult and debatable subject between artists.

There aren't a lot of easy to read books about shadows, dedicated entirely to the wonderful medium of pastel. I like Maggie's approach and have learn a lot from her book. I love just looking at her paintings, as though the book is a coffee table, not just an educational one.

She has produced a good book, full of information for the beginner and more advance artist alike.

Very little instruction in this book! 5 Nov. 2013
By Wulf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of the most useless art instruction books I have ever read. I have been using pastels for many years, and bought this book, and a few others to improve my skills. this book shows pastel paintings by several accomplished artists (however trite their expression and styles are!), who show step by step instructions of how they worked on their particular painting. It in no way discusses how to actually begin to see shadows, or draw the, except in the most cursory way. This book does not go over basic concepts of painting with pastel, or doing landscapes, which are the sole example shown in the book, not portraits, still life, city scape, interiors, skies,etc. It barely mentions perspective, aerial or otherwise, or most basic concepts needed for landscape painting. While I own some very helpful other art instruction books from this publisher, this book was nothing but a showcase for some of their artists to show their mastery in painting landscapes, with very little real instruction at all. i would not recommend this book for either the beginner or advanced artist.

Crammed with great info 27 Feb. 2013
By Miguel Carvajal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book is chockfull of very useful information and the examples are quite easy to follow. The book is not for the beginning pastelist because it assumes you already have a working knowledge, however basic, on how to paint and draw with pastels. Loved it!
