Known for his use of luminous color, Albert Handell, whose lush landscapes light up these pages, provides lucid instructions to help first-time pastelists achieve impressive results as soon as they begin working with the medium.

After reviewing pastel supplies, the author discusses landscape composition and how to establish large shapes first, abstract certain areas, develop a focal point, work from dark to light, and capture the illusion of reality through color. Stepped demonstrations isolate specific landscape aspects, showing how the pastelist depicts skies, trees, buildings, water, rocks, woods, snow, and light.

I first came across this at our local library and was pleased to find a good copy available here. I also saw that this author is interviewed on youtube. Lovely man. There are also links to his classes available in related links as well. Exploration into pastel from initial exposure to oil is handled very nicely here. This book has many good painting tips that translate to any medium.

Great Old Book by Albert Handell!
