Deborah Secor is generously offering a whole soft pastel book for free. She will publish it on the newly opened blog Landscape in Pastel where she is going to post it chapter by chapter. Judging from already published materials it sounds like a good handbook for any workshop or home study. Knowing Deborah as a resourceful and eloquent teacher (search this blog for Deborah) I expect a very useful and well prepared pastel package. The first chapter is explaining basics about pastels, pastel paper, color shapers and other pastel gadgets. Looking forward to see the whole book! And Deborah, thanks for sharing!
