Oil Pastel.

OIL PASTEL. Kenneth Leslie. New York: Watson-Guptill, 1990. Illustrated, 144pp., hardbound, $29.95.

Oil pastel is a medium that has not received much serious attention from professional artists and authors. Mr. Leslie favors this medium as versatile, painterly and portable; excellent for fast sketches, for planning oil paintings as well as for producing sophisticated finished works. A thorough overview of the various kinds of oil pastels and oil sticks on the market, the advantages of different papers and surfaces, and application processes are discussed and clarified with over 200 color illustrations by more than forty leading artists. A worthwhile addition to any high school art library.
