The past couple of weeks we have enjoyed lots of family, with nary a single minute to crash until bedtime!
Picked up a book, however, that was very soothing in the 5 minutes before I passed out: wink2:
Believe it was recommended by someone in the op forum and picked up a copy from a used book store. Thank you! I'm sorry not to remember your name.
The book is titled, "Painting with Pastels" by Nancy Kominsky. The title is a bit open as to type of pastel but it is all oil pastels.
She has a variety of 11 lessons ( no people/animals), each broken into sections, with the op colors used for that section and how she layered in each section.
Mrs. K uses sandpaper but that doesn't seem to be necessary.
It is an older book, published in 1986 and has 63 pages.
Again many thanks to the original poster!
