Painting with Pastels
"Painting with Pastels" shows the reader everything they need to know to paint with pastels, from materials to techniques to painting from photographs. Maggie Price, one of today's most well-known pastel instructors, demonstrates the varied techniques of the medium, including different types of strokes, blending, layering, underpainting and mixing media. Hand-in shots show how to hold and apply the pastel, and the twenty-two step-by-step demonstrations cover everything from preparing your surface to underpainting to figure drawing.
Maggie Price is the co-founder, former editor and current contributor of The Pastel Journal. She currently conducts her own workshops on painting with pastels in the US and other countries, and is an active member in numerous art societies. Her work can be seen at www.maggiepriceart.com.
