By Daniel Greene

The Book in Three Sentences:  There are many books on this subject but not all of them use pastels as masterfully as Daniel Greene, and by the examples in the book alone I had to pick up a copy, plus it’s really inexpensive.  There is a treasure of information in this book from what pastels, studio set up, process, to several demonstrations from start to finish.  The books is mostly black and white images but they still absolutely convey the concepts that are described and the pictures are well printed.
