Getting Started in Pastels


About The Book

With this kit, you can learn to use oil pastels to create beautiful works of art.

Pastels were introduced in the fifteenth century, and they enjoyed a renaissance from the nineteenth century onward by way of such illustrious names as Edgar Degas and Jean-Françoise Millet. Pastels are pure pigment held together with a binding agent, so works created with them are vibrant and colorful. With the pencil, 24 pastels, sketchbook, and instructions in this kit, you’ll have everything you need to get started on your own masterpieces. The 64-page book shows easy-to-follow steps and offers helpful tips on shading, scraping, blending, color theory, and much more. Harness the unique qualities of pastels, and expand your artistic skills!
