Finding Your Style in Pastels Written by Jean Hirons

“a comprehensive and beautifully illustrated go-to guide for pastel painters from beginners to experts. There are so many variables in painting with pastels today, and they are all addressed here. There is a very complete section illustrating how different pastel brands react to different painting surfaces, as well as a chapter about the various possibilities and techniques for toning and underpainting.”

Luscious and luminescent, the pastel medium can be used to produce vibrant paintings or expressive drawings. Having practiced pastel art for years, Jean Hirons shares her expertise of the medium in her book, Finding Your Style in Pastels.

The book focuses on the many choices pastel artists have when using the medium. One Amazon user describes the book as “a comprehensive and beautifully illustrated go-to guide for pastel painters from beginners to experts. There are so many variables in painting with pastels today, and they are all addressed here.  There is a very complete section illustrating how different pastel brands react to different painting surfaces, as well as a chapter about the various possibilities and techniques for toning and underpainting.”
 
The book is richly illustrated with paintings by Hirons and other pastel painters of note, exhibiting the wide variety of styles that can be achieved. Exercises follow most chapters and an extensive bibliography is included.

This pastel handbook was featured in the 2016 Seoul International Book Fair on June 15 to 19. The event took place at the World Trade Center Samseong-dong, Gangnam-gu Seoul, South Korea.
