This set includes not only a fantastic set of SAA Artists, pastels, but Rebecca De Mendonca guide to this rewarding medium.

Rebecca covers an enormous range of topics: basic mark-making, a nicely progressive range of three-dimensional shapes, shading, tone, colour etc; then further exercises exploit pastel’s unique qualities as both a drawing and a painting medium and provide insights into the possibilities offered. All these early lessons give quick results, always making you want to learn more.

The real meat of the book, and its main virtue, is the sheer breadth of subjects. As well as introducing new techniques in an eminently practical way, these cover landscapes,
waterscapes, trees, skies, people and animals.

Rebecca is also at home with both fine detail and loose styles of working, giving you the chance to explore the medium as widely as possible.
