TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 24 September 2014
I did not like parts of this book. It does have good tips for the beginner and examples, colour mixing, etc. But I disliked the mix of the different styles of the 3 authors, and one who uses garish colours, I disliked. The style to me was unclear and unnatural. I have other books which are not like this and I prefer those (so am contemplating returning this one). It was my mistake, I thought the book was entirely by Margaret Evans, and I did not realise until I received it, that it is by 3 authors.

Always wanted to learn pastel painting? Here's the book for you. See the approach of three different artists and learn from each. Get straight into the basics with Peter Coombs. Use a limited palette to complete a finished step by step painting. Then have a go at a landscape, river or moonlit scene. Paul Hardy introduces more serene landscapes in pastel, including valleys, trees and water, autumn, a seascape and townscape. Margaret Evans looks at portraying flowers in pastel. Each artist includes techniques and information. There are 13 demonstrations in all and over 250 step by step clear photographs supported by galleries of finished paintings. This is useful for beginners upwards. This book has material published previously in four other books. This review first appeared on yarnsandfabrics website.
