Capture the charm of children in a fresh and lively manner. Discover the secrets to painting portraits that radiate the magical spark of childhood. Inside, you'll learn how to use the fresh, direct medium of pastel to capture realistic likenesses, as well as the unique spirits of your young subjects-from little ballerinas and flower pixies, to cowboys and explorers. 15 mini-demonstrations illustrate basic techniques, from creating a color wheel to painting expressive hands, facial features and clothing. 9 complete step-by-step demonstrations explore a range of poses, skin tones, hair types and fabric textures. Friendly instruction covers lighting, poses, color, composition, background and other elements of successful portraits. For beginning and advanced artists alike, this book will make for more authentic, more "childlike" finished portraits.
