Books I Recommend

For painting with pastels

As I come across books that I believe will be of help to you I'll post them up here.  There will be a mixture of both e-Books (download to your computer) and hard books (posted to you)... but I will tell you which is which. Obviously I'm going to recommend my own one first.

Pastel Painting Books


Four Seperate Pastel Painting Books.  These four e-Books are jam packed with lots of information and step by step lessons for the pastel artist especially if you're just beginning or not been using pastels for long.  For more information click this link:  Pastel Painting Series (can be purchased individually)
