A Word From the Author:

”Teaching has allowed me to become more analytical, something that comes naturally to my personality. By attempting to communicate the concepts of why we do what we do when painting, I have had to spend considerable time researching the theories of representational painting. This research is evident in the concepts expounded in the Pastel Pointers columns, blogs and now within the covers of this book. Thus many are not my original ideas or concepts, but retold through my experience. What I hope to share within the pages of this book is not the formula of how to paint a pastel painting, but a pool of information that may provide some tips to help you make your paintings better, the process easier, and inspire you to enjoy all of the diversity that is pastel” — Richard McKinley

How I Separate My Palette: I use the layout of my palette to help me control the value and color in my paintings. I start by separating pastels into color families. Yellow begins on the far left, followed by orange, red, violet, blue and green. Then I further divide the pastels according to value. The lightest value pastels are at the top; the darkest at the bottom. I also separate the grayed, more neutral colors from their color families and relegate them to one side. Thus I’ll have gray-yellow, gray-red, gray-blue and so on. Finally, I segregate pastels according to their physical makeup; i.e., harder and softer varieties.
