The Art of Painting in Pastel

by Dover

When it comes to sketching from life and nature, pastel offers significant advantages: a technically simple method, it requires none of the cumbersome paraphernalia of watercolor or oil painting. The medium is currently enjoying a surge in popularity, and this vintage guide for intermediate-level artists offers timeless tips on creating still lifes, recapturing flowers and landscapes, and painting memorable portraits. Unlike most other guides of its era, this volume is illustrated throughout with dozens of color examples that demonstrate not only good use of the color technique but also the solid underlying construction. Leonard Richmond was a British painter, teacher, designer, and author of over a dozen art instruction books. He and co-author J. Littlejohns were a major force in art self-instruction for half a century, and their richly illustrated techniques are an enduring source of guidance and inspiration. Suitable for professional and practicing artists, art teachers, and students, this edition of The Art of Painting in Pastel features an Introduction by famed muralist Frank Brangwyn. Authors: Leonard Richmond, J. Littlejohns 128pp., 8.25x11 paperback ISBN: 9780486814216
