Revel in the luminous and vibrant qualities of pastel with Ellen Eagle's essential course in the history, techniques, and practices of the medium. In this comprehensive yet intimate guide, Eagle explores pastel's rich but relatively unexamined past, reveals her own personal influences and approaches, and guides you toward the discovery and mastery of your own vision. A magnificent selection of works by masters such as James Abbott McNeill Whistler and Eugene Delacroix augment this guide, as do works by contemporary artists including Harvey Dinnerstein and Elizabeth Mowry. Aimed at serious artists, this guide enlightens, instructs, and inspires readers to create brilliant and sensitive works in the historic medium of pastel.
