Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0823033112, Paperback)

Oil pastels offer artists a virtually unlimited treasury of creative potential. They’re also considered a safe alternative to soft pastels. Oil Pastel for the Serious Beginner shows both new and veteran artists how to make the most of this fabulous medium.

Lessons progress simply and clearly from easy subjects and techniques to the more difficult and complex. First, artists learn how to use oil pastels to create traditional paintings in still life, landscape, and portraiture. Then, they’ll discover 12 experimental techniques that push the medium of oil pastel to its limits—including impasto, etching, washes, and monoprint; stencil and screen techniques; and even methods for combining oil pastel with soft pastel and mixed media.

Whether one is an an amateur artist or experienced veteran, Oil Pastel for the Serious Beginner is the ideal one-stop source for mastering this popular medium.
