Description

Please note shipping for the book is £2.60, which is added at checkout.

There are step-by-step exercises and longer projects to help you to build essential skills and allow you to produce a range of pictures, including landscapes, still life, portraits and animals.

Vital drawing skills are explained and demonstrated, along with an easy-to-follow guide to colour theory. I have included a huge variety of finished paintings to provide ideas and inspiration for your own future pastel work.

‘This unassuming, but not insubstantial book is a bit of a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Although billed as an introduction it is actually one of the best and most comprehensive books on pastel there has been in a long time – possibly ever.’ – The Artist, Magazine

Please do bear in mind that our pastels are hand made from a variety of traditional pigments, all of which have their own characteristics. This means that size does fluctuate ever so slightly, and the softness varies between the different colours. We do, of course, keep well within our criteria for the perfect pastel, but if the pastels you’ve received don’t quite live up to your expectations, please get in touch and we’ll make sure it’s put right.
