Margaret Evans shows how to blend and work with pastels, using their soft velvety tones and subtle changes of colour to reflect the beauty of flowers in the landscape, in gardens and in still life studies. Both drawing and painting techniques can be applied, creating stunning effects with light, shade, varied textures and detail.
