4.0 out of 5 stars Full of many different techniques, 24 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I received this book as a birthday gift to help me along in my new love of painting with pastels.
It goes over many and various techniques for pastel work with examples of paintings done in the style being discussed by professional artists, so you get a good idea of how that particular technique can be used in different artistic styles and to creating a finished piece. Plenty of pictures and photos.

I personally feel that this book alone is not enough as it's not so much a 'how to' or 'step by step' as some other books are, but an encyclopedia of pastel techniques as the title suggests! However, I have found it valuable and interesting alongside several other pastel books in helping me learn and understand this art medium more thoroughly.
Definately worth buying if you want to understand more of what you can achieve with the various pastels (oil,soft,pencil) out there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Irish whistle music, 24 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this cd solely on hearing the track 'Lord Mayo', which is an absolutely wonderful song and is beautifully done on this cd.
I enjoyed this album's other tracks too and will definately be looking out more of Joanie Madden's music in the future.
I love the cd artwork aswell :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweetone in D, 24 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this whistle specifically because I've seen it mentioned in other reviews that it not only has a lovely tone but is quieter than other whistles. I was looking for a whistle more suited to indoor playing and due to having M.E (a symptom of which is noise sensitivity) a whistle quieter than the D whistles I had tried previously, which due to how loud they are, find difficult to play for very long!

This sweetone whistle definately has a nice sound, is comfortable to hold and is quieter than other whistles. It's not though, I've discovered, as quiet as the Clarke original D whistle, which I ordered at the same time and has a gentler and less piercing sound, which makes it better for my sensitivity. However, that point is made due to the fact I wanted this whistle for specific reasons not because I don't like the Sweetone!

This Sweetone whistle is very nice and a welcome addition to my whistle collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful tone, 24 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this whistle as I was looking for a deeper sound than the several D whistles I own.
The whistle arrived quickly and as soon as I started playing it I got chills - an amazing whistle!
I have never tried a Generation before and specifically chose this 'brass' whistle rather than the nickel hoping for a nice mellow sound. Well, this whistle has the most lovely mellow sound.

I'm aware from reviews that some either love or dislike Generation whistles and that quality control can be a problem. The Bb brass whistle I received however is of excellent quality with a wonderful tone and is a pleasure to play!
I LOVE it!
