Ellen Eagle's new book

A new book on painting in pastels is always a welcome event in publishing. It is even more welcome when the book is by somebody who is as thoroughly versed in their art - and craft - as Ellen Eagle.  Ellen's new book is called Pastel Painting Atelier – Essential Lessons in Techniques, Practices, and Materials. It is published by Watson Guptill; and Crown Publishing, and will cost $35 US or $41 Canada. It is also available as an ebook. Publication date is April 23, 2013!


  1. Absolutley love the book cover! I wonder what pastel surface was used in that painting?

  2. I don't know Vanessa, but it turns up in a lot of her paintings. I'll ask her, and get back to you.

  3. Vanessa, Ellen uses illustration boards with a gesso pumice mixture. If you like to email me at oldenbroke@gmail.com I'll send you her recipe!
