After pencils, pastels are the easiest medium of all for the novice artist to learn on: you can get a vivid, appealing result with just a few hours practice, and the solid sticks of colour are satisfying to handle and to use. Planned and compiled by an accomplished pastel artist and teacher, Practical Pastels follows a simple formula to guarantee success, taking the reader from their very first mark-making exercises to accomplished sketches in easy-to-follow stages with accessible, inspirational text.
