A brand-new paperback edition of Pastels Workshop by Jackie Simmonds. This popular practical course in pastel painting, full of inspiring ideas and expert instruction, is a wonderful way to gain mastery of the pastel medium.
Pastels Workshop is part of the Collins Painting Workshop series for the leisure painter, where the approach to learning to paint is based on active, ‘hands-on’ participation by the student. This approach combines instructional teaching by a professional artist with practical exercises and projects which are specifically designed to encourage students to develop their own style and ideas, rather than just copying those of other artists.

• TECHNIQUES – comprehensive guidelines on materials and methods
• PRACTICAL TIPS – helpful hints and checklists
• IDEAS – still life, flowers and gardens, landscapes, seascapes, figures and abstracts
