Introduction:
Welcome to the world of Pastels, first of all thank you for picking up this eBook, as it shows your genuine interest in this subject. Why Pastel? Well pastel is easy to learn with proper training which you will be learning from this eBook, it already earned its popularity during Renaissance time, also what’s good with pastel is it comes with a wide variety of colors to choose from, Famous Artists who uses this media are Leonardo Da Vinci, Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt and Vincent Van Gogh.

If you may ask, how do I learn this art, it started when I was learning to render Charcoal, as Charcoal was for gray tone values, I asked myself one day, if you know how to use Charcoal, why not learn Pastels? So I decided to add color to my artworks, by learning to use Pastels for my colored artworks, as what I had seen (and also adapt some of their style) in some artist who uses it and earn their living by accepting commissioned works from their clients (it’s not a bad idea if after all if that’s what you are thinking or planning in your life- So my advice to you- “be skillful and confident by learning and practice all the exercises from this eBook”). And by the way if you want to learn how to render using Charcoal after you learned everything from this eBook, check our other Charcoal Titles- Learn How to Draw Portraits of People in Charcoal for the Beginner (Learn to Draw), Learn How to Draw Landscapes In Pencil and Charcoal For The Absolute Beginner (Learn to Draw), Learn How to Draw Portraits of African Animals in Charcoal For the Beginner (Learn to Draw).

So be ready with your materials and follow the step-by-step procedures in the exercises. And after that I’m sure at the end you will have Pastel Rendering skills and you will be rewarded for that, but first “have fun doing the exercises”. Read more…
