Product Details

Praise

“Pastel Painting Atelier: Essential Lessons in Techniques, Practices, and Materials isn’t simply about pastel techniques, but how to truly capture a life and its full worth on paper. Read it like a novel, as Kingston’s foreword implies, and you’ll gradually pick up on Eagle’s ability to read a face and translate it to the surface.”
-The Artists Magazine, December 2013

“Unlike most books about art, unlike most books written for creative people, this one provides several hours of quiet time with the artist at work in her studio, in her mind, with her eyes, with her hands.  She sees beauty in the tiniest of details: the curve of the silhouette of a woman’s face, the arrangement of the old pipes beneath the even older sink in the corner of a Manhattan studio, the private thoughts that take shape in a best friend’s eyes. This is a gentle book, an inspirational one with the promise of some instruction for the visual artist, but you need not be an artist to see what she sees, and to enjoy the way that Ms. Eagle perceives and so lovingly sees the world.”
-Digital Insider, September 2013 

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen a book that deals with pastel in such breadth and depth.”
