The second title in a brand-new series of painting books, written by professional artist-teachers, for absolute beginners. These books will start with real basics and assume no knowledge or experience of painting whatsoever.
Full of easy-to-follow exercises and demonstrations, the Collins You Can Paint series will give even the most hesitant of beginners the enthusiasm and 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. So, by the end of the book you feel that you really can produce a pastel painting to be proud of.
