New Alan Flattmann Book

pas0207.jpgAlan Flattmann is no stranger to The Pastel Journal. You’ll remember our February cover for his vibrant painting, Brass Band Revelry. The artist continues to inspire us here at the office, especially when a copy of his latest book lands on our desk.

9781589804074.jpgThe Art of Pastel Painting (Pelican Publishing),
originally published in 1987, has been re-released in light of what Flattmann
calls a “pastel renaissance.” New paintings and updated techniques
illustrate Flattmann’s oeuvre in all its splendor and provide current advice for pastel artists.

Happy Memorial Day reading!

    I am a proud owner of that earlier edition from Flattmann. He certainly has a long history as a pastelist, and it is a very authoritative book.

    Look at that great red-dominant cover work!
