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.
i enjoed every different section 0f the book
its very usefull particulary for those starting workshop in pastels.
I also found it a source of inspiration for some of my compositions. It has given me a lot of joy.
My boyfriend bought it me as a valentines gift after I had added it as a favourite and I can't fault it. Brownie points all around. XD
Having said that, I find I enjoy reading about the idea and then trying it out for myself. So if you are open to self exploration this is worth having in the library.
