Come enjoy the art of pastel painting with beloved workshop instructor Maggie Price. In this step-by-step guide, she teaches you everything you need to know to make the most of this accessible art form. From selecting the right materials to learning the fundamentals of composition, Maggie starts with the basics and progresses to 21 complete pastel demonstrations that detail specific painting techniques and effects.

  • Underpaint to achieve brilliant light and deep shadows

Their contributions to this book illustrate the limitless possibilities of pastel painting and offer additional insight for working with this versatile medium.
