Pastel artists of all skill levels will find invaluable information in this comprehensive resource that shows how to work with pastels and how to choose them. Divided into two parts, the first section contains an A-to-Z encyclopedia covering the full pastel range, including soft pastels, hard pastels, pastel pencils, oil pastels, and water-soluble pastels. The exact characteristics of each medium are explained as are specific pastel brands. The second section contains a broad selection of themes in which techniques are shown in concept. Lavishly illustrated throughout, this reference includes galleries of paintings for inspiration and step-by-step instructions for a variety of subjects, including landscapes, portraits, and still lifes.

Judy Martin is a teacher, a professional artist, and the author of The Complete Guide to Airbrushing, Drawing with Colour, The Encyclopedia of Printmaking Techniques, and The Longman Dictionary of Art.From Library Journal:
This outstanding volume on pastel techniques lives up to the encyclopedic claims of its title in a most delightful way. The book introduces soft, hard, oil, and water-soluble pastels, plus pastel pencils. The first section contains more than 40 demonstrations of techniques, from pouncing to scumbling. In addition, Martin explores pastel in combination with several other media, including acrylics and watercolors. With so few good books available on the subject, most libraries should consider both this and Guy Roddon's Pastel Painting Techniques ( LJ 8/91).
