Landscape Painting in Pastel: Techniques and Tips from a Lifetime of Painting

Author(s): Elizabeth Mowry

Art - Techniques

Loosely based on previously published title THE PASTELIST'S YEAR, Elizabeth Mowry completely revamps the work into PASTEL PAINTING, THE LANDSCAPE. Completely updated and reworked to be relevant for pastel artists today, readers of all levels will learn the skills and techniques they need to create beautiful landscapes. Pastel materials and surfaces will be pictured and explained thoroughly. Strokes and exercises will be demonstrated and explained so that beginners can become acquainted with the medium. And intermediate and advanced readers will enjoy the master tips and secrets shared by one of the masters of the medium as she infuses every page with the knowledge, experience and feedback that she has received over the last twenty years of teaching and jurying exhibitions. Clear step-by-step demonstrations show how to achieve the painterly effects that light up spring, summer, fall and winter scenes. Although the images in the book will reflect the seasonal changes that occur in nature, the seasons will not be overly emphasized. The book will introduce the idea that nature changes in exciting ways for artists to capture in their work.
