Previously published as the hugely successful Leisure Arts, these Art Handbooks are being reissued in a handy format with beautiful new covers and the same high quality content. Pick up a pastel - and start painting! Peter Coombs shows how easy it is using over 75 step-by-step photographs and a variety of inspirational pictures. Pastels are fun, versatile and easy to use. Strokes and squiggles of colour can be blended to create beautiful skies, waterscapes and landscapes, and details can be added easily using broad and thin lines. By merging and overlaying colours you can create soft velvety tones, rich textured or subtle effects, atmosphere, light and movement. This invaluable guide takes you through all the stages of creating a painting, from simple strokes and blending techniques to creating perspective and atmosphere. Four easy-to-follow practical demonstrations help you gain confidence and build up skills, illustrating all the techniques you need to know...so pick up your pastels and paint!
