In ‘Essential Techniques for Pastel Portraits’, the well-known pastel artist Alain Picard gives the viewer the foundational tools to succeed in pastel portraiture. Starting with compositional sketches and working at the easel, Picard gives a step-by-step, over-the-shoulder insight into how a pastel portrait is executed. The view follows the evolution of a single pastel portrait, layer by layer. Tools and techniques covered include: using value scales, using the flat side of pastel sticks, using hard and soft pastels on mid-tone paper, blending pastel on the paper.
