Full of exercises and demonstrations, this guide aims to give even the most hesitant of beginners the confidence to start painting in pastel. All the instruction is broken down into really easy step-by-step exercises to help you to practise and build up your knowledge and expertise of painting gradually. For example, you learn how to paint a tree in three easy stages, then a cloudy sky and finally how to paint a simple foreground, so that in the end you can paint a complete landscape in pastel. In this book, Marie Blake takes the reader by the hand with simple exercises and explains exactly how to paint all the separate features of a picture one-by-one.

Emphasizing more "show" than "tell," this very visual instructional takes even the most hesitant, absolute beginners of all ages by the hand and demonstrates, stage by stage, how to start painting in pastel with enthusiasm, confidence, and success. The book assumes no prior painting experience, opening with the essentials: materials, making marks, mixing color, understanding foreground and distance, and making objects look three-dimensional. Step-by-step exercises show how to paint separate features of pictures-plants, flowers, trees, skies, stones, water-then how to combine them into finished paintings.About the Author:
